US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called on the Chinese government to
explain the details of the attacks Google claims it, and around 20 other
companies, suffered in December.
Yesterday Google announced it was pulling out of China after a series of
hacking attacks against its servers. Other companies have also given details of
the attacks, which were highly targeted and aimed at stealing either corporate
information or information on users.
“We have been briefed by Google on these allegations, which raise very
serious concerns and questions,” Clinton said in a statement.
