China's official newspaper, People's Daily, warns that Google's (GOOG) recent claims of Chinese hacking attacks could hurt its business, and accuses it of being a ”political tool” to denigrate the Chinese government. Google blamed China for trying to hack hundreds of Gmail accounts last week, allegations that were strongly denied by China's government.

    "...and accuses it of being a 'political tool' to denigrate the Chinese government."

     

    The Chinese dictatorship, to their credit, seem to understand our need to save face. A few years ago they would have used the term "running dogs."

    The Chinese Government needs to "save face" and get to the real facts. They are responsible and need to come clean.

    What other Chinese response could have been expected? "Oh, you caught us, sorry." I'm confident the Chinese government has invested a lot of capital into cyber attacks. They won't ever come clean. Our only preventative defense is a more dynamic security infrastructure which includes real-time tracing of the origination of cyber attacks and all the negative publicity. A tit for tat strategy won't work until we've designed a security infrastructure impenetrable from overseas hacking.
