WikiLeaks Expose Charges China of Hacking Google

A leaked document passed on to the New York Times by WikiLeaks cites an unidentified Chinese contact warning the US Embassy in Beijing about the Chinese Politburo's involvement in the 2009 Google attack.

This news comes as a courtesy of WikiLeaks vault, full of more than a quarter million US Department of State cables, which are confidential documents sourced from US embassies spread all over the world.
 
The report in the New York Times states, "The Google hacking was part of a coordinated campaign of computer sabotage carried out by government operatives, private security experts and Internet outlaws recruited by the Chinese government. They have broken into American government computers and those of Western allies, the Dalai Lama and American businesses since 2002."
