New York Times has uncovered new details about the “online attacks on Google and dozens of other American corporations have been traced to computers at two educational institutions in China, including one with close ties to the Chinese military,” say people involved in the investigation. The two schools in question are: “Shanghai Jiaotong University, a top school in its trade, especially for its computer sciences courses.” And “Lanxiang Vocational - a large vocational school that was established with military support and was intended to help train computer scientists for the military. Also, Baidu is a large supporter of this school.” “Tracing the attacks further back, to an elite Chinese university and a vocational school, is a breakthrough in a difficult task. Evidence acquired by a United States military contractor that faced the same attacks as Google has even led investigators to suspect a link to a specific computer science class, taught by a Ukrainian professor at the vocational school,” revealed.
