More trouble in China

Yesterday, the AP reported that Yahoo e-mail accounts belonging to foreign journalists were hacked and the Google search engine was sporadically blocked yesterday in China. This has been a spotlight issue ever since January when Google proclaimed that it may leave China altogether because of a series of cyber attacks and government imposed censorship.

China’s choice to censor its Internet content so closely is a convenient excuse to roll out tools and attacks on sites it deems to be subversive. Google tracked the root of its hacks to the Chinese government and found software that could be used on non-Chinese sites to spy and collect “intelligence” (gee, wonder if it has been used… duh!) 

And after I blogged about this 2 months ago, someone actually replied this was not cyber terror… yeah, right.
