Anyway with this (somebody) stealing google's lunch money drama, the whole dick swinging kabuki nonsense is starting to get on my nerves. Then the other day this absurd email drops into my inbox:
Operation Aurora: Prepare for Cyber War!Feh. While there is limited evidence that China may have been involved, people need to take a gods damned break about needlessly accusational language being thrown around.
China had a plan to attack and steal Google intellectual property
and compromise Gmail. Two weeks ago when Google announced they were the target
of sophisticated attacks from China, we were notified a war had begun. The
attacks, known now as "Operation Aurora" took advantage of a Microsoft Internet
Explorer vulnerability. Fighting cyber war without sufficient weaponry is like
entering Iraq with just knives. You cannot win by doing so - after all, who
brings a knife to a gunfight?
Just remember that any asshole can start a gun fight.
