[b]Google phishing: Chinese Gmail attack raises cyberwar tensions[/b]

Tensions between the US, UK and China over the issue of cyber-attacks were set to escalate after it emerged that Chinese hackers have stolen the login details of hundreds of senior US and South Korean government officials as well as Chinese political activists.

Google said it had discovered and alerted hundreds of people who had been taken in by a carefully targeted "phishing" scam originating from Jinan, the capital of Shandong province. Hackers aimed to get complete control of users' email accounts on the Gmail system.

Of course it's not involved. That'd be illegal and unethical.

How is this news? They've been doing this for years now, and this is one of the reason google left China.

      ​ ​According to my wife, he's copying me when he puts his hands in his pockets. I think he's probably just a cool guy. . .

      To avoid getting caught by the camera you can use a black tape to cover part of your license plate no like 9 will become 3. Then there is no way they can identify you as the system does not match the actual license no you are having.

      One of my regular drivers would have pointed them out. Plus the way the traffic behaves, people keep crossing on amber and red if they think they can. We've only just had countdown lights installed at most major crossings, maybe cameras are next, I'll certainly be on the look out for them.
