If evidence is presented that attacks on Google originated in China,
authorities there said they will punish those responsible.
However, Chinese sources reportedly said they have yet to receive proof of
charges that hackers based in China were responsible for the recent hacks
incurred by Google, as well as some 30 other high-profile corporations.
According to an item posted Saturday by the Chinese state news agency Xinhua,
Google has yet to file a report with the Ministry of Industry and Information
Technology over the attacks.
“If Google has had evidence that the attacks came from China, the Chinese
government will welcome them to provide the information and will severely punish
the offenders according to the law,” Vice Minister Miao Wei said in the report.
