Today a blog post was put on the Official Google Blog talking about the attack against them from China, and their responses, and possible recourses on a business side.  There are two posts, and they make for an interesting read, so be sure and check them out.

Post #1 -- http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/01/new-approach-to-china.html

Post #2 -- http://googleenterprise.blogspot.com/2010/01/keeping-your-data-safe.html

The hacks were a result, basically, of a technique called "targeted phishing" or "spearphishing".  One of our other handlers, Maarten, wrote an excellent diary about it last year.  Check it out here.
