Tracking Network Attacks from China

A fascinating article from Time talks about the efforts of a computer security specialist in tracking hackers whose attacks originated from China. A group that is being called "Titan Rain" is supposedly behind a number of highly-organized attempts at breaking in and stealing information from high profile networks in the United States, including government and military systems. There is some speculation that the government of China is behind the attacks on U.S. computer networks. (Source: Time)
