Now that the hangover has gone, I thought I'd make a quick comment on the Times exclusive this morning about a letter from the head of MI5 to British CEOs saying that the Chinese are trying hack the planet. Is this really news?
I guess that for non-technical types it might come as a surprise, but the phrase "damn Chinese hackers" is almost a cliche in technical circles. Standard joke really. Recently I was asked to look at logs of a political website that had experienced an outage. The Chinese Department of Education was one of the many distributed sources for the attack that it had suffered.
