Random charts - hacking





Report (76-page) by computer security firm Mandiant, which has tracked hacking activities around the world and has concluded that "... hundreds of investigations convince us that the groups conducting these activities are based primarily in China and that the Chinese Government is aware of them."

There is some skepticism about the report (e.g. see here and here), but for the most part it is getting good press... Make of that what you will - either because it is spot on (charitable explanation), or because vested interests such as infosec companies see it as good for business (the less charitable explanation).
