In view of the hardening of positions on both sides, Google reportedly has chalked out a detailed strategy for closure of its search engine in China, and it is almost final now as the talks over censorship with the Chinese authorities have reached an apparent deadlock since January of this year. The Chinese government on Friday warned the US based search company, that it was not prepared to compromise on internet censorship with Google in China.
The Google China fiasco has now taken a new turn. In a recent development as reported by the NYTimes, Google in a secret counter-offensive encounter has managed to hacked the Chinese hackers back by breaking into the source computer in Taiwan which was involved in attacks on the Gmail accounts of human right activists. As a result of this counter attack, Google engineers have found out some evidence which indicates that the attacks were actually originated from mainland China and were possibly orchestrated by the Chinese government.
