San Francisco - After being called off Friday, the on-again, off-again cyberattack against CNN's Web site again picked up steam early this week, according to network security analysts.
Gee, and these are the fine folks that want to "showcase" their country during the Olympic Games. I wonder if there are going to be matches pitting one group of hackers against another. The medals will be awarded as bronze, silver and gold keyboards!

If you have been around the net for awhile, you might consider pointing out that the Chinese are ANTI-SCIENTOLOGY.

(In joke)

The Chinese hackers mistakenly took down thesportsnetwork.com over the weekend because they thought it was associated with CNN. Their hacking skills may be better than their awareness of the Internet.

Their results were apparently that they slowed down CNN to a 200ms response time for some users some of the day.

It didn't help that CNN knew about it before hand and slowed down bandwidth to the asia/pacific region

Be careful what you wish for. The US economy is thoroughly intertwined with China's now. If the US boycotts the Beijing Olympics over Tibet, the Chinese government would take that as a personal affront. The likely result would be that they'd start calling in some of the billions of dollars in US debt that they hold notes on. If you thought the mortgage crisis and Bear Stearns bailout was scary, the results of that would be even scarier.

And maybe we could stop buying their crap and reopen the factories in our country.

I totally agree Katie1. I don't like being dependent on other parts of the world for our prosperity, unless there is no other way. Most all the junk coming in from China can be made right here; it used to be that way.

Me neither. It's a fine mess we've gotten into, thanks to "invisible hand" economics.
