Intelligence chief: attacks on Google wake-up call

“Recent cyber attacks on Google are a ‘wake-up call’ and neither the U.S. government nor the private sector can fully protect the American cyber infrastructure, the director of U.S. national intelligence said on Tuesday.

‘Malicious cyber activity is occurring on an unprecedented scale with extraordinary sophistication,’ Dennis Blair said in prepared testimony for a Senate intelligence committee hearing.

Google, the world’s top Internet search engine, said last month it would not abide by Beijing-mandated censorship of its Chinese-language search engine and might quit the Chinese market entirely because of cyber attacks from China.”
