Google phishing: Chinese Gmail attack raises cyberwar tensions
Posted 02 June 2011 - 03:08 AM
Tensions between the US, UK and China over the issue of cyber-attacks were set to escalate after it emerged that Chinese hackers have stolen the login details of hundreds of senior US and South Korean government officials as well as Chinese political activists.
Google said it had discovered and alerted hundreds of people who had been taken in by a carefully targeted "phishing" scam originating from Jinan, the capital of Shandong province. Hackers aimed to get complete control of users' email accounts on the Gmail system.
As usual, the Chinese government denies it is involved.

Of course it's not involved. That'd be illegal and unethical.
