Shanghai Jiaotong named as a source in Google compromise

Published by under China internet,US attacks

Loyal readers of TDV may remember Heike’s post about Peng Yinan, aka Coolswallow of Javaphile. According to this NY Times article, the school that Yinan has occasionally taught at was discovered to have been involved in the Google compromise revealed last month. At this point, it is only the IP addresses that seem to link the school to the compromise but it is an interesting coincdence that one of the most prolific Chinese hackers has a close connection to the school.

There are many possibilities for SJTU’s IP addresses being involved in the incident. Any assessments made about SJTU’s involvement at this point would be just a guess.
