Re: Good reading
I still believe that it is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm also convinced that attribution is also very hard when we found clear evidence as in the specific case. Working time and techniques adopted by APT could not be enough for attribution of responsibilities, also third parties could use similar techniques to deceive investigators.

In the specific case I have no doubt that behind the cyber espionage campaign, there are Chinese units, in other cases like Elderwood I'm not so confident.

You raise an interesting point, rjones2818. George, What was the tipiping point that made you decide to release the Putter Panda intellegience report and if China is now the worst offender,  do you expect the "collection of sensitive information on your enemy" to continue and broaden?

Thanks for your post.  My main question is will you report when any government is found by you to be hacking?
