We reported on May 7 that Chinese computer hackers, in retaliation for the U.S. spy plane crash, were able to hack into White House computers and shut their internet down for several hours.
Now they have declared a ceasefire and conceded defeat due to U.S. countermeasures. ?By the end of May 9,? according to Chinabyte, based in Beijing, ?more than 1,100 of our nation?s websites were defaced to differing degrees, with 72 percent of the websites belonging to the government or educational institutes.
?From now on our work should be concentrated on raising the security awareness of our webpage workers and installing firewalls and other Internet security products.?
