F.B.I. will investigate Google hack

John Moe Jun 3, 2011

On Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the F.B.I. would launch an investigation on whether China was behind the Gmail hack. Google accused China on Wednesday of hacking into “what seem to be the personal Gmail accounts of hundreds of users including, among others, senior U.S. government officials, Chinese political activists, officials in several Asian countries (predominantly South Korea), military personnel and journalists.” China said the accusation was pulled out of thin air – a “fabrication.” The New York Times quotes Clinton: “We are obviously very concerned about Google’s announcement,” Mrs. Clinton said. “These allegations are very serious, we take them seriously, we’re looking into them.”
