You're right. A government group would NEVER work against another part of the government, not in the USA, not in CHINA, not anywhere else in the world. I'm taking the fox news approach to my defense, as well : Anything contradicting this statement is an anecdote and an anomoly.

Re:hey (3, Interesting)

FriendlyLurker (50431) | about a year ago | (#44677087)

Anyone knowing even a little about, say, DNS, BIND, networks, and specifically DOS attacks knows that you absolutely do not need high bandwidth connectivity to orchestrate an devastating DOS attack. So either you are ignorant, or being deliberately misleading. Second - Guardian "a site well-known for its anti-US bias" - that is the extent of your fact finding truth exposing debating prowess, the equivalent of "...Snowden leaks lalalala head in the sand, all disclosures ANTI-US lalalala...". Not much to I can say to that overwhelming logic DNS-and.BIND (461968)...

Sooo.... your saying that China has shitty connectivity to the rest of the world so it would not be possible to launch a DOS attack.

Wonder why ???? :-) It was a good day !!!!

While we don't get that much, only 1500 to 2000 over nite and 2-3 times that during the day, it's still nice to see the "Hi how are you" attempts drop off. And for the cynical among you, the number did not drop because they suddenly managed to get thru either. :-) Normally 90-95% of the over nite IP's that are valid trace back to good old China.

Cyber soldiers cyber rattling their cyber sabers (1, Insightful)

stewsters (1406737) | about a year ago | (#44675827)

The problem is that there are too many people who don't care or know that their computers are in bot nets and there are tensions about hacking each other in the air. I'm guessing that this is some group of people trying to start something larger. It would be good to tone it down a bit, as this kind of thing mostly hurts countries whose economies are tied to the Internet.

Re:Cyber soldiers cyber rattling their cyber saber (5, Insightful)

shentino (1139071) | about a year ago | (#44676167)

They should treat infected computers the same way they treat infected people.

With quarantines.

If you've got some sort of disease, the health police get to confine you. Even if it's not your fault you got sick, because the quarantine is to protect the public, which is why your freedom to go as you please is subordinate to the public's freedom not to catch your germs.

They should treat infected computers the same way. It doesn't matter if it's your fault it got infected or not. If your computer is putting the internet at risk, it should be quarantined. I don't care if the user of the computer is inconvenienced or if it's not his fault. He is harming the internet just the same.

If you defiantly refuse to care or fix it, you should be hit even harder, because at that point you're effectively aiding and abetting whatever criminal activity the hacker is using your computer for.

If I was an ISP and a customer failed to have their computer cleaned up after I warned them, I would terminate their access for abuse. Once they know and refuse to take care of it, they are complicit.

I work for a HSIA and anyone using qwest or century link knows that they can be blocked from the internet for a virus or spam. we get about 20+ requests a year to have century link unblock the internet to an entire hotel because one guest had a virus, used the internet and left. Then a week later century link blocks and redirects all web traffic and everyone else isnt able to get online till a manager requests to get unblocked, ISP wants them to turn on encryption add passwords use antivirus, well for staff thats no problem. problem is THIS IS A OPEN WIFI HOTSPOT which means they get hundreds of unknown devices connecting every days and we cant just have staff grab guests computers and check for viruses.

you dont need to quarantine PC's everywhere from the internet, if you just setup proper filters that stop this, while we cant stop viruses we usually stop spam with SMTP redirection.

Fragmentation of the "old internet" (5, Interesting)

DNS-and-BIND (461968) | about a year ago | (#44675983)

The internet as we know it today is clearly fragmenting. China's .cn domain is restricted and regulated up the wazoo. You have to have a legitimate registered company to get a .cn domain, and even after you do, you have to register with the government and display an ICP certificate [accesstochina.com] on your front page. The government gives you an encrypted .cert file to place on your site which will be periodically verified by a web crawler bot (bazs.cert). Websites (even non .cn domains) without such authentication will eventually be blocked.

This clearly separates .cn from the rest of the internet. Moreover, most of China has no interest in the foreign-language internet, and most of the rest of the world has no interest in Chinese language content. So it makes sense that eventually the split will become official. Of course China will trumpet this as their own independent innovation (China strong!) and overthrowing the Western oppression capiDUHlism and whatever crap they need to spout to blame the foreigners and distract their population from the daily crimes of the CCP. You already can't go to an internet cafe without showing ID, and this has been used repeatedly along with CCTV footage to identify and imprison the foes of the Party.

I just can't wait for the TVs that watch you to become mandatory...for social stability, of course. Of course, it's hard to argue with the Party as China is a country where the smart people really are in charge. If any of you ever wondered what it would be like if democracy was repealed and scientists and engineers got to run things without interference from those smelly common people, look no farther than China.

Fuck Yea! I wan't to move to China. Or better yet just replace all our United States 'public servants' with their 'public servants'. At least their public servants are looking after the best interest of China. Come to think of it our public servants are looking after the best interest of China too. I guess what I really want would be for their public servants to replace our public servants and have them look after the best interest of the United States. It would be kind of delightful to see a public official supporting the public that he is an official in. I would also like to export for free all of our U.S. lawyers and lobyists. That would be the cheapest and quickest way to put the U.S. back on top of the economic food chain.

The fourth-generation leadership (the Xi Jinping crowd) is settling in. These are the "princelings"; privileged children of former party leaders. Take a guess at how well they're going to do.

The rapid economic growth that you saw under the second- and third-generation PRC leadership is going to come to a screeching halt, and nobody will want to admit it but the reason is that, to put it in Western terms, the new leaders are not Dilberts but instead are PHBs.

It's hard to know what the future holds. Much of the leveling off of China's growth isn't about changes in management style but about slowing exports and a lack of internal demand.

It seems axiomatic that there will be attempts made to consolidate power by Xi Jinping given some of the weakness of Hu Jintao and the perceived threats from the likes of Bo or other who may follow him.

There are so many challenges to PRC leadership it's hard to know where to start or what could really hobble them in ways they don't know how to fix. The economy is a big one, there's so many places for it to go wrong (currency manipulation, corrupt/inept banking, bubbles, etc etc) and a lot of players with money on the table The environment. Foreign relations (Japan, the rest of Asia, the US...). Resources. Internal dissent.

I think the economy is a major issue; mismanaged, a lot of people who were doing very well could be doing a lot less well. This could be a complex threat for CCP leadership, as a major economic downturn (or a poorly managed one) could result in a twisted alliance between officials with investments and entrepreneurs vs. CCP leadership. And then let's not forget the sizable new and aspirational classes benefitting or hoping to benefit from the economy. Their loyalty to the government may be tested in a downturn.

Re:Fragmentation of the "old internet" (4, Interesting)

gtall (79522) | about a year ago | (#44677131)

I'm not sure what chops the current leadership has, but China's real problem is loose monetary policies and a tendency to lie to themselves using official statistics. During the West's economic meltdown, they became concerned the Chinese people would go all Falun Gong on their collective Party asses if their economy slowed significantly. And it would have had to because the West was not buying nearly as much Chineseware. So they opened the spigots from their central bank. However, they didn't count bank loans made off the books more or less in the shadow economy. These loans kept large enterprises in the money, including those dinosaurs, the State companies.

Bad things happen when you mis-allocate investment (see U.S. economy and the housing boom). And China has been mis-allocating in very large way for a number of years. They cannot slow it very well because their Falun Gong Ass problem and the fact they do not really control their banking sector with the off-the-books loans.

They could try increasing consumption and have been making an effort in this area. But to do that effectively, you have to give people a reason to buy now rather than saving for later. Cheap money would do that, but they are bursting at the seams with cheap money and it hasn't really increased consumption that much.

They have another problem, they've spent a lot of time and money on creating an educated workforce. They still have a lot of un-educated workforce but they simply have too many people. The educated workforce is having trouble finding educated jobs and hence could contribute to the Falun Gong Ass problem. The new young people have high expectations.

To make matters worse, Chinese companies believe in getting ahead at any price, and that price includes the Environment. Now they are poisoning the land. Pollution is a real drag on the economy because to fix it you must re-allocated money from other investments without any immediate return on investment. And you must knacker the state-owned enterprises which pollute in a state-sized way. To not fix it means you are poisoning your own people and that has deleterious effects on productivity.

Are you serious? Do you really want people who are putting their children in debt, have no fiscal responsibility, and don't care about anybody but themselves making decisions on a Federal level?

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what's for dinner. Democracy is also the lowest common denominator (meaning that instead of skimming the cream off the top, you're scraping the dregs off the bottom).

The summary immediately tells me that the article will be content-free, as in too little detail to be worth reading.
