For 18 minutes in April, China’s state-controlled telecommunications company hijacked 15 percent of the world’s Internet traffic, including data from U.S. military, civilian organizations and those of other U.S. allies.
It gets my attention. And guess what – I know how they did it. And I know how it can be done again.
Hat tip The Tickerguy.
Apparently Cyber experts have proof of the hijack. China seems to be getting more proficient at hacking the internet.
Concerns about Chinese espionage were raised during the Australian National Broadband Network tendering process in Australia. No doubt much to the anoyance of the now former Minister for Defence.
Not that China is alone in this type of activity.
