Government hackers: The cyber Cold War is raging – Jul. 28, 2011
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — On April 8, 2010, traffic to about 15% of the world’s websites was rerouted to China.
State-owned Internet company China Telecom tricked relays from around the world into routing traffic through its servers for about 18 minutes.
It isn’t publicly known what happened to that traffic when it passed through China. But a reportfiled late last year by Congress’ U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission said the hijacked traffic could easily have been captured, censored, or even replaced with other data without anyone’s knowledge.
