Baidu sues registrar over DNS attack

It’s a revealing contrast.  

Since Google revealed that its China servers had been hacked, it has been told repeatedly that it must obey the law in China.  
 
Baidu’s DNS was last week brought down in a cyber-attack, apparently by the “Iranian Cyber Army.” Because the attack was in the US, it has taken its registrar to court for negligence. 
 
Google does not have that option, even if the attackers could be found. But it certainly has no help from the authorities. There is no reporting, let alone discussion or criminal investigation, of the attacks on personal Gmail accounts.
 

 As posted earlier today, Beijing’s response to the Google’s disclosure demonstrates that, user data is not safe in China. The country’s huge cyber-police force is more likely to be found abusing data privacy than protecting it.
