According to a report published in the New York Times (NYT) on Thursday, security investigations have revealed that the recent cyberattacks on Google and 30 other American companies had been initiated from two well-known schools in China – the Shanghai Jiaotong University and Lanxiang Vocational School.
According to a Wednesday statement by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the failed al-Qaida attack, on the Amsterdam-Detroit Northwest Flight on Christmas Day, has prompted the airport security screeners to expand the use of swabs, which can detect explosives’ residues, to the hands of passengers and their carry-on baggage.
Ever since the search engine giant Google threatened to roll its China operations back, all thanks to the hacker attack that was recently made on Chinese Gmail accounts that resulted in theft of intellectual property, the country's problems as far as hacking goes have been thrown into considerable limelight.
Official reports have confirmed that the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act has managed to sail through the US House of Representatives, having gained approval by a huge margin.
The vote of 422-5 was much higher than initially expected and might just make it easier for the act to pass the Senate when it is put up for election.
In a retaliatory move against Google, and in defense of China’s censorship of Web content, an unnamed spokesperson for China’s State Council Information Office recently emphasized the government’s right to punish citizens who use the Internet for the purpose of confronting Communist Party power and ethnic policies.
