Yahoo has claimed to become another victim of cyber–attacks in China, losing support from its own affiliate network Alibaba in the process. Last week Google issued a surprise challenge to the government in Beijing, threatening to pull out of China, after it suffered sophisticated cyber attacks on its network.Now its US rival, Yahoo, has been pulled into the dispute. Yahoo said that like Google, it too, had been a target of similar attacks in China.
Yahoo said it supported Google’s position that the cyber attacks were deeply disturbing, and that violation of internet privacy should be opposed. But Yahoo’s decision to support Google prompted its own partner in China, Alibaba, in which Yahoo owns a 40% stake, to call the move “reckless”.
