The Chinese goverment have vehemently denied that Chinese hackers were behind the security breach of hundreds of Gmail accounts, including those of top U.S. government officials. A phishing campaign was allegedly used by hackers to deceive Gmail users into disclosing passwords, allowing the culprits to monitor email traffic. Chinese officials have mentioned that they are fully opposed to any cyber criminal activities and will cooperate with the international community to combat cyber threats, but that the blame against China was baseless and filled with an ulterior motive. Reports indicate that the attacks seemed to originate from the Lanxiang Vocational School in Jinan, where Chinese computer scientists are being trained for the military. The FBI is currently working with the White House National Security Council following Google's announcement of the breach.
