Phrogman writes “In this CNN article by Bruce Schneier, he states that the US Government inadvertently enabled Chinese hackers access to Google’s Gmail. The article states ‘Google made headlines when it went public with the fact that Chinese hackers had penetrated some of its services, such as Gmail, in a politically motivated attempt at intelligence gathering. The news here isn’t that Chinese hackers engage in these activities or that their attempts are technically sophisticated — we knew that already — it’s that the U.S. government inadvertently aided the hackers.’”
