Dominion Lending Centres Clearlease Reports Chinese Government Denies Hacking Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Accounts

VANCOUVER, BC (June 3, 2011) Dominion Lending Centres Clearlease Reports China denied that the country was the source of recent attacks against users of Google Inc.’s email service. But the government in recent weeks has acknowledged taking a more active role in policing cyberspace to defend against security threats.

Google said Thursday June 2, 2011 that people operating in the country’s northeast infiltrated the accounts of hundreds of Gmail users, including U.S. government officials, Chinese activists, military personnel and journalists. It was at least the third time since early last year that Google has fingered China as the origin of disturbances to its operations.

Such allegations are “unacceptable,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said Thursday at a regularly scheduled briefing. “Saying that the Chinese government supports hacking activity is entirely a fabrication.”

Google’s latest disclosure said the attacks came from an area that is home to one of the People’s Liberation Army’s technical reconnaissance bureaus, but the company didn’t mention the possibility of involvement by the Chinese government.

China long has said that its Internet users are the world’s most victimized by cyberattacks. Mr. Hong said China pays great attention to cybersecurity and administers the Internet in accordance with the law.

Beijing in recent weeks has acknowledged more participation by its military and government on the Internet and suggested that China’s capabilities are weak compared with those of the U.S.

PLA spokesman Geng Yansheng last week confirmed the existence of a long-rumored military unit devoted to cyberspace, according to a posting on the government’s primary website. The PLA unit is popularly known as the Blue Army, a name apparently picked to distinguish it from the Communist Party’s main fighting machine, nicknamed the Red Army.

Mr. Geng offered few details, and it was unclear exactly what the unit does. When asked whether the Blue Army exists within the Guangdong Military Command, Mr. Geng referred to Chinese needs to defend against international threats to “relatively weak” network security, according to the website’s account. “You mentioned there are reports the PLA established a Blue Army. That is set up based on needs of training and improving the level of network security,” Mr. Geng said.

Google on Wednesday said “bad actors” based in the Shandong province city of Jinan were responsible for sending so-called phishing emails. The emails had links to a fake Gmail login page that the scammers used to collect the users’ passwords, giving the hackers access to the account holders’ email.

“These allegations are very serious,” U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday. She said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident. The White House said no official U.S. government accounts were accessed.

U.S. officials briefed on the incident said the Obama administration isn’t going to raise it directly with the Chinese government until all the facts become more clear. “Law enforcement needs to dig into this over the very short term so we have all the facts and procedures set out—then diplomacy,” a U.S. official said.

Three months ago Google blamed China for the sluggishness of some Gmail accounts. The company said Chinese authorities it didn’t name were interfering with its email services in a way “carefully designed to look like the problem is with Gmail.”

In January of last year Google said users in China were behind broad attacks on its email system that included efforts to break into accounts of the types of human-rights activists whom China often brands as criminals. Google subsequently moved its mainland Chinese search service to Hong Kong and stopped obeying requirements to censor results. China’s own Internet filters now censor Google searches from China.

That clearly has hurt Google’s business in China. The company had 19% of China search revenue in the first quarter of this year, compared with 76% for Baidu, according to Beijing research firm Analysys International. At its peak, in late 2009, Google had nearly 36%, while Baidu had 58%.

Many governments consider themselves relatively weak compared with the U.S. in their ability to conduct cybersurveillance or engage in cyberwar, a view increasingly aired through China’s state media.

The Xinhua news agency on Thursday published comments critical of Washington by Li Shuisheng, a research fellow with the top military-science academy of the PLA. In response to news in recent days that the Pentagon’s first cyberstrategy, due for release soon, concludes that an Internet attack could be grounds for a military response, Mr. Li said that the strategy “appears to be a warning to potential cyberattackers on the U.S. of the consequences, but is fundamentally an attempt of the U.S. to maintain its unparalleled global military superiority.”

The city of Jinan, which Google described as the origin of the latest attack, sits 250 miles south of Beijing and is important technologically and militarily. Jinan houses the headquarters of one of China’s eight regional military commands and is home to one of the PLA’s technical reconnaissance bureaus. The bureaus serve as arms of China’s equivalent to the U.S. National Security Agency, according to a 2009 report from a committee created by Congress to study China.

Investigators probing the attack Google outlined early last year examined whether computers at Jinan’s Lanxiang Vocational School were involved in the attacks, according to a person briefed on the matter at the time. A school official on Thursday denied any connection to hacking.

Beijing is beefing up its Internet strategy in other ways that lack obvious military implications but nevertheless underscore the central government’s continued vigilance.

The State Council last month said it had formed an Internet information office meant to strengthen coordination between various agencies to modernize and better regulate the Internet. The report cited needs to combat pornography, gambling and fraud to promote the healthy development of the Internet in China.

Human-rights groups accuse Chinese authorities of duplicity in such efforts to police the Internet.

In a report last year, cybersecurity firm Symantec Corp. pinned blame on Chinese users as the most active proponents of targeted webmail attacks like the kind Google has alleged. Symantec’s analysis said China was the origin of 28.2% of such attacks during a 2010 period studied, saying that many of the attacks were disguised as coming from other countries.

The Symantec report didn’t mention Jinan. Instead, it said the southeastern city of Shaoxing led the world in such attacks, running 21.3% of those in China. A spokesman for the city on Thursday said the analysis is incorrect.

A Beijing-based hacker said by email Thursday that Gmail is the most trusted email service. While disavowing any malicious intent with his hacking, he said: “A lot of Chinese activists and dissents are using Gmail. So, for sure, the government would want to know about their e-mail communications.”
