10:11 AMGoogle Threatens to shut all Google services in china and Google.cn
Internet giant, Google recently announced that the company is thinking about closing google.cn which was launched in January 2006 and its offices in china as google detected lots of sophisticated targeted cyber attacks to company's main systems, originating from China. Most of all, access to the GMail accounts of known Chinese human rights activists is known major intentions of hacker's attacks which seems to leads to serious danger to google and other 20 big companies. In most cases, the accounts were also found breaching using malwares and phising scams.
Google had already implemented censoring results for which google has been criticized alot these days by Chinese natives.
David Drummond, Google’s Chief Legal Officer states: " These attacks and the surveillance they have uncovered — combined with the attempts over the past year to further limit free speech on the web — have led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China.
We have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn, and so over the next few weeks we will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine within the law, if at all. We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China. "
