Google May Quit China! Google released a stunning blog post tonight that details a “sophisticated and targeted attack” on Gmail that “resulted in the theft of intellectual property from Google”. Google notes that the attack was not just on Google infrastructure but also on more than twenty other companies from various industries. Google states that they are working with the authorities in the U.S. and will be notifying the companies of the breaches. The attack, Google says, appears to be aimed at “accessing the Gmail accounts of Chines human rights activists”. Google does not believe the Chinese gained that objective and states that the Chinese hackers were only able to obtain information such as subject lines and dates, not the content of the emails themselves. – http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/2010/01/12/google-may-quit-china (via http://ff.im/ee5PJ)
