 January 12, 2010, *6:09 pm*  Google Threatens Pullout from China After
Cyberattacks on Dissidents By THE NEW YORK
TIMES<http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/author/the-new-york-times/>

In a calm and understated blog
post<http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/01/new-approach-to-china.html>,
Google said Tuesday that it had recently come under an unusual cyberattack
from China. The Web giant said the attack was very different from previous
ones because it was aimed at Chinese dissidents’ Gmail accounts, dozens of
which were compromised.

Google said it had identified about 20 other companies that had been
similarly targeted.

As a result of its investigation, Google said it was “no longer willing to
continue censoring our results on Google.cn,” the Chinese version of its
search engine. If the Chinese government refuses to allow Google to operate
Google.cn without censorship, Google said it may mean shutting down
Google.cn and its other China operations.
