It's not uncommon to lease servers in China and a lot of their data centers don't ask any questions. Just because the Chinese took the money to host the C&C servers does not a Chinese attack make. It still could be anyone unless the C&C servers can be seized and analyzed. That's the reason to have them in China, as it may be.

Companies are going to be reluctant to name names a lot of the time because they do business in certain countries too. It's easier for a government to take that kind of risk.

re: China Hacked RSA, U.S. Official Says
- So RSA is saying the the government has more-information-about the attack then they themselves do? WTF?

- If I read-between-the lines here I see RSA accusing Gen Alexander of making shit up but not wanting to actually say that. -And in the absence of any proof from Gen Alexander I must say I agree.

- Sorry General, but an accusation such as that from someone such as yourself, in these heated cyber cold war times, really needs to have some prof behind it. We can't just go on your say so.
