Gosh, Y’think?

The New York Times on China’s hacker underground:

Three weeks ago, Google blamed hackers that it connected to China for a series of sophisticated attacks that led to the theft of the company’s valuable source code. Google also said hackers had infiltrated the private Gmail accounts of human rights activists, suggesting the effort might have been more than just mischief.

A sophisticated zero-day exploit simultaneously targeting dozens of major tech firms?  Yes, now that you mention it, I suppose it is possible this wasn’t just some kids fooling around in the basement.

    You’d think the hackers would have done some basic defacement, like “Google sux Bing rox” across the homepage, to cover their tracks 🙂

    I was wondering if you ever considered switching the page layout of your web site? It is very well written; I love what you have got to state. But maybe you can include a little more in the way of content so people might connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Que eu saiba, os empregados do Banco de Portugal recebem reformas do Fundo de Pensões do Banco de Portugal. Problema dos empregados do Banco de Portugal. Desde que não venham cá chatear depois.

    I showed a friend this quilt and she’s decided to make it. I wrote up instructions for her, and I was wondering if you’d mind if I posted the instructions on my blog, linking to your blog, of course.
