bags online sale bags online sale Edward Snowdens snooping claims raise alarm bells in Hong Kong

Hong Kong: Fresh revelations by former CIA employee Edward Snowden have raised concerns that the US National Security Agency NSA may have hacked into Hong Kongs key internet exchange, which handles nearly all the Chinese territorys domestic web traffic.

In an interview in Hong Kongs South China Morning Post newspaper published today, Snowden said the NSA had been hacking computers in Hong Kong and mainland China since 2009. Among those institutions hacked, he said, was the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which houses the Hong Kong Internet Exchange.

The fact that the Chinese University was hacked was probably a good choice, if it happened it probably would have been a good choice, said Charles Mok, a member of Hong Kongs legislative council and an IT specialist.

So the fact that the internet exchange with much of the local domestic traffic would have gone through was probably picked as a target.

Snowdens allegations have until now largely focused on the extent to which the NSA was eavesdropping on US citizens. His most recent comments about China and Hong Kong where he is believed to be in hiding draw attention to NSAs role in conducting surveillance of foreign countries.

Snowden was quoted as saying he believed that the NSA had conducted more than 61,000 hacking operations globally. We hack net bags online sale work backbones like huge Internet routers, basically that give us access to the communications of hundreds of thousands of computers without having to hack every single one, the Post quoted him as saying.

The Hong Kong Internet Exchange is one of dozens of Internet Exchange Points, or IXPs, around the globe handling domestic traffic betwee bags online sale n local service providers and some regional traffic. Such exchanges remove the need for such traffic to take lengthy detours via overseas servers.

The exchange was set up in the mid90s and is still run by the university. The university said in a statement that it closely monitored the exchange and had not detected any form of hacking to the network.

Journalists visiting the facility today, however, were able to walk through an accessrestricted door into a central computer room with racks of servers without being challenged.

Cathy Huang, an analyst at Frost and Sullivan in Singapore, said that Hong Kong may be especially vulnerable to eavesdropping since its laissez faire economy left it lagging countries like Japan and Australia in setting and enforcing regulations on internet security.

Hong Kong is quite an open economy and therefore, the government doesnt have many stringent regulations to ensure organizations devote enough resources into Internet security, she said.

Some security experts, however, said that gaining undetected and continuous access to the exchange and placing eavesdropping software or hardware would be hard.

Mok, the legislative council member, said after talking to administrators at the exchange that any largescale eavesdropping would have been noticed.

Certainly the bags online sale y havent noticed anything, he said. If its very advanced, fine, but they cant be copying everything over. It would be noticed and targeted. bags online sale
