dns believes Google attack originates in China

Dns : 22 January, 2010  (Technical Article)
Software analysis on last week's high profile Google attack reveals Chinese origin algorithm at the core of the attack
Joe Stewart, a security researcher within the Counter Threat Unit for SecureWorks, has announced that his analysis into the software used in last week's attack on Google is evidence that the attack was Chinese in origin.

By disassembling the malware codes used in the attack Stewart has discovered a module of the algorithim contained within the programme was originally released as part of a Chinese-language paper which has only been published on Chinese-language websites. While source code itself is not restrained by any particular human language, or nationality, most programmers reuse code in their native language providing the strongest indication yet that the attack originated in China.

Stewart also thinks the development of the software could have been worked on for quite some time since some of the modules in the codebase have timestamps dating back to May 2006.
