Security experts dissect Google China attack.
Analysis The hacking attacks against Google that prompted the search engine giant to consider pulling out of the country are far more frequent than is commonly thought.
Security experts are surprised at Google's response, rather than the attacks themselves, which analysts reckon relied on exploit-ridden PDF attachments in emails. These messages were designed to drop backdoor Trojans onto targeted systems once they were opened by prospective victims.
Google said it planned to stop filtering search results in China, and may pull out of the country altogether, after it detected attempts to hack into the Gmail accounts of human rights activists.
