Google upset about the hacking of Gmail accounts in China by anamaulida


									News has just come out that the people who tried to steal login details
of Google email accounts of numerous account holders, some senior U.S.
officials, Chinese activists and journalists which had been hacked some
time back might be a work of some Chinese hackers [Source - Reuters]. It
is said by Google that the suspects appear to be from Jinan, from the
capital of China's eastern Shandong. Jinan is a place where People's
Liberation Army has six technical bureaus and a technical college, which
was investigated by U.S. last year in regards to a previous attack on
Google.      The recent computer based invasions of multinational
companies have brought up a major problem about Internet security that
needs to be resolved. Google detected the hackers and distorted their
stealing process Google said on its official blog. Google had earlier
disclosed about the previous cyber attacks on its systems by hackers in
China and this recent event could worsen the things between Google and
Beijing. Google partly withdrew its services from China after last year's
conflict between Google and Chinese government over censorship and
serious hacking episode. Google did not say that the Chinese government
backed the attacks.

  The cyber attacks taking place from China has become quite common
recently, said Bruce Schneier, chief security technology officer at
telecommunications company BT. "It's not just the Chinese government.
It's independent actors within China who are working with the tacit
approval of the government," he said. The United States of America has
warned that if a cyber attack presumably if it's demolishing enough, then
the real world military will come into action and retaliate, although
experts say it is difficult to trace origin precisely. Lockheed Martin
Corp says it had suffered -œa significant and tenacious attack-•. The
point is cyber attacks are becoming very frequent and now big giants are
being targeted where as in the earlier it used to happen just for
personal reasons but now targets like Google and Lockheed Martin Corp
make us assume that the motives are something different and huge. Cyber
crimes are quite similar to regular crimes just the procedures of doing
them is different, its like you can steal a top-secret file without
having the need to walk into the office.      Google said on its official
blog that the hackers, who appeared to originate from Jinan, China,
recently tried to crack and monitor email accounts by stealing passwords.
BEIJING: China said that it was "unacceptable" for Google to accuse it of
having played a role in a cyber infiltration campaign targeting Gmail
accounts of senior US officials, Chinese activists and journalists. "To
put all of the blame on China is unacceptable," foreign ministry
spokesman Hong Lei said. This issue needs to get sorted out peacefully
and as soon as possible because it has already started to catch fire. A
US government spokesman said it was looking into the incident, but
declined further comment. -œGoogle recently uncovered a project to
collect user passwords through the means of phishing,-• Google said on
its official blog. The company's shares were down by 0.7 percent closing
at $525.60.      This article is provided by courtesy of Karan Gupta of 1
