cheap shoes sale cheap shoes sale Could NSA be hacking Chinese disease information



Like a lot of people, Ive been following the story of Edward Snowden and NSA. But it hadnt occurred to me that there might be a publichealth angle. Via South China Morning Post: Internet exchange at Chinese University seen as target for hackers. Excerpt:



As the home of the hub for Hong Kongs internet traffic, Chinese University is regarded by local security experts as one of the prime targets in the city for cyber attacks by foreign agents.



The Hong Kong Internet Exchange HKIX, on the universitys sprawling Sha Tin campus, neatly fits the description of a network backbone which whistleblower Edward Snowden says the US security services are targeting. Snowden says the university is a key target for the US, though there is no evidence that the HKIX has been hacked.



Charles Mok, the lawmaker representing the information technology sector, said HKIX, which connects traffic sent by local internet service providers, could have been the Chinese University target Snowden was referring to in his interview with the Post on Wednesday.



It is the most convenient choice since it is the hub of all internet traffic within Hong Kong, he said. But the attacks might not be traceable.



Set up in 1995, HKIX was designed to allow faster and easier local internet connections and avoid the need to use servers overseas. Essentially, it connects all of the citys internet traffic to a single infrastructure.



HKIX is operated by the Information Technology Services Centre affiliated with the university at sites on campus and in Kwai Chung.



The exchange serves almost 200 public and private organisations in Hong Kong and overseas, including the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer OGCIO, as well as Google, Yahoo and Facebook, together with local fixedline telecommunications and mobile broadband service providers.



If so, the US would be immediately aware of what is being said between the medical experts at University of Hong Kong and their colleagues cheap shoes sale on the mainlandwhether about H7N9, H5N1, or any other public health concern.



If the Americans are also hacking mainland sites directly, and they doubtless are, they know as much about such outbreaks as the Chinese themselves. And no doubt they are also hacking Saudi websites about MERS.



The question then is: Why arent they communicating what they learn to the rest of the world? If they simply dont want to reveal what they know, they allow such diseases to spread when they could be stamped out.
