China Denies Involvement in Google Attack

Kara Reeder

China denies that it had any involvement in a hacking attempt against Google and several other companies, reports The Associated Press. The incident has led Google to threaten to quit China.


Even though a researcher discovered code that links the cyber attacks to China, a Chinese information ministry spokesman maintains:

Any accusation that the Chinese government participated in cyberattacks, either in an explicit or indirect way, is groundless and aims to discredit China.

According to The New York Times, the U.S. is demanding that China investigate the attacks. China dismissed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's call for Beijing to conduct a "transparent" inquiry into the attack, instead depicting the U.S. as cyberspace's villain and China as its unwilling victim.
