Governments Increasingly Entangle World Wide Web | The Foundry

Cyber aggression is also on the rise. The number of technical attacks on activists’ online networks is growing in at least 12 of the countries recorded in the report. China is a major global source of cyber attacks, and though not all of them can be traced back to the government, the sheer scale and organization suggest that they are at the very least sponsored or endorsed by the government. Interestingly, the Freedom House report comes at a time when the U.S. government is considering ending all its broadcasting to China by Voice of America and relying solely on its Chinese language Web site for news to China. Guess how much controversial news reporting the Chinese government will allow to get through.
