周一,官媒《人民日报》旗下的《人民日报海外版》在首页刊登了一篇抨击Google的文章《谷歌,你想干什么》,警告Google要付出代价。

谷歌,你想干什么

6月1日,谷歌公司有关负责人在博客上称,该公司数百名邮件用户受到“网络钓鱼”攻击,黑客来自中国济南,受影响的包括一些美国政府官员、“中国人权活动人士”及外国记者等的邮箱。

事实上,这已经不是谷歌第一次诽谤中国了。

去年1月,谷歌就声称“受到来自中国黑客的攻击”,但至今仍未能拿出任何证据;这回,谷歌将“中国人权活动人士”列入受害者名单内,有意迎合西方世界对中国政府的负面想象,强烈暗示黑客攻击是中国政府指使干的,但依然没有公布发现来自中国境内黑客攻击的证据。由此看来,谷歌将指责的矛头指向中国,是无中生有、别有用心、意图险恶的。

因为,中美之间早有打击黑客等网络犯罪的国际合作,已经建立了司法领域的国际合作机制。谷歌若掌握实据,可以诉诸司法解决,何以一而再、再而三地抹黑中国,利用舆论高唱中国威胁论?

谷歌的这些指控非常严重,美国联邦调查局正在与谷歌一起展开调查。

更耐人寻味的是,美国国防部最近拟定了首个正式网络战略,称将把来自另一个国家的一切针对美国的“网络入侵行为”划分等级,其中,最高等级的网络入侵将被视作“战争行为”,可以使用传统军事力量予以报复回击。不少国际观察人士认为,谷歌的所谓指控具有极浓的政治色彩,不排除它有借机挑起新的中美互联网安全争端的险恶意图,为美国的网络战略找靶子。

如今的谷歌让人扼腕。曾经领衔创新的互联网标杆,已经沦为诽谤它国的政治工具;曾经领唱开放共享平等的领袖企业,如今却背弃了互联网精神。

其实,谷歌不应该过多卷入国际政治斗争、充当政治博弈工具,一旦国际风云有变,恐怕会成为政治牺牲的对象,也将会被市场抛弃。

在无序的互联网上,商业间谍、网络黑客大量存在,谷歌遭受网络攻击恐怕是难免的。其实,中国是世界上遭受网络攻击最多的国家之一,来自中国国家互联网应急中心的数据表明,2010年,中国境内共有451万余个IP地址的主机被植入木马,比2009年增长了1620.3%;2010年,境外木马控制服务器IP数量约有22万个,2009年增长了34.1%,其中位于美国的最多,占14.66%,较2009年增长57%。

作为国际知名的互联网企业,谷歌应该顺应互联网发展规律,重树互联网精神,做一个青史留美名、世人都尊敬的企业,继续走在创新的大道上,而不要被路边的荆棘砾石绊住,更不要被海妖塞壬的美妙歌声所诱惑。

DailyTech – China Threatens Google for Speaking Out Against Cyberattacks
Company claims Gmail attacks came from China; nation says “yea right”

Last week, Google Inc. (GOOG) had to scramble to deflect a concerted effort to steal hundreds of user passwords from its popular email service Gmail. The company says the concerted phishing attack specifically targeted a cadre of high ranking targets — “senior U.S. government officials, Chinese political activists, officials in several Asian countries, military personnel and journalists” — much like a separate March attack which Google detected. Google traced the attacks to IPs in the city of Jinan, the capital of China’s eastern Shandong province and home to the headquarters of the intelligence unit of the People’s Liberation Army.

On Monday a Chinese state-run newspaper, People’s Daily, blasted Google (Chinese) for claiming the attacks traced back to its nation. The newspaper billed Google a “political tool” used by the West to vilify the Asian giant. It said that Google’s statements could damage its position in China.

The threats are serious as People’s Daily is the largest overseas newspaper of the Communist Party regime in China, and acts as somewhat of a government mouthpiece. The newspaper accused Google of “deliberately pandering to negative Western perceptions of China, and strongly hinting that the hacking attacks were the work of the Chinese government.”

The attacks article follows an official denial from officials at the Chinese Foreign Ministry, who claimed the attacks did not originate from China.

The article contained plenty of other juicy attacks on Google.

“Google’s accusations aimed at China are spurious, have ulterior motives, and bear malign intentions,” it read.

“Google should not become overly embroiled in international political struggle, playing the role of a tool for political contention. For when the international winds shift direction, it may become sacrificed to politics and will be spurned by the marketplace.”

The government-run newspaper didn’t elaborate what steps would be taken to “spurn” Google from the market place.

The Chinese government is reportedly still paranoid that the “contagion” of rebellion in the Middle East could infect its populous. The nation has blocked Facebook and Twitter to try to choke the flow of unregulated information. The group has also imprisoned several individuals including famed modern artist Ai Weiwei. These recent behaviors have drawn international condemnation from the U.S. and others.

The U.S. government’s largest military contractor Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMT) was recently the victim of a major cyber attack that some sources close to the case say is believed to have initiated from China. The attack was a sophisticated one, which Lockheed Martin just confirmed was enabled by information stolen from famed security firm RSA.

Tensions between the U.S. government and China have been running high on a number of issues, including censorship, rare earth metal trade, and contract bids.

For Google, these latest developments must feel like the latest chapter in a long and abusive relationship. The company had its source code stolen from attackers traced to Chinese IPs. After finding little sympathy from the Chinese government, the company uncensored its search engine, only to be banned from China. Google eventually agreed to re-censor its search to avoid missing out on the lucrative market and has since been relicensed, though much tension remain.
