The several days of organized protests in Ukraine are notable for the relative lack of police violence.
Unlike in the US, Canada, Thailand, Greece, and Spain, peaceful protesters have not been beaten, tear gassed, water cannoned, and tasered by Ukrainian police. Unlike in Egypt, Palestine, and Bahrain, Ukrainian protesters have not been fired upon with live ammunition. The restraint of the Ukrainian government and police in the face of provocations has been remarkable. Apparently, Ukrainian police have not been militarized by US Homeland Security.
In May, it turned out that the hackers had succeeded in gaining access to the private email account of Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo and the email system of the Belgian Foreign Office.
An investigation was started, and Foreign Minister Didier Reynders now confirms that there are indications that the case has a Chinese link.
Over the last decade Internet security firms (especially Kaspersky Labs and Symantec) have been increasingly successful at identifying the hacker organizations responsible for some of the large-scale hacker attacks on business and government networks. The latest group to be identified is from China and has been called Hidden Lynx. This group appears to contain 50-100 hackers (as identified by their coding style) and is believed to be largely responsible for a large scale espionage campaign (“Operation Aurora) in 2010 and is still active.
Chinese hackers have been reportedly trying to monitor and gain access to the technology used by the US in developing military drones.
Manager of threat intelligence at FireEye, Darien Kindlund, who monitored the espionage, said that the Chinese campaign is the largest to be solely focused on drone technology
Kindlund said that the campaign seems to align well with the focus of the Chinese government to build up their own drone technology capabilities
Russia recently revealed that it is organizing a Cyber War organization within the Defense Ministry.

Noting what’s going on in China and the United States, the Russians have decided to catch up.
After seeing its popularity decline, Yahoo's Internet portal in China has formally closed down, in a sign that e-commerce giant Alibaba Group is transitioning away from the brand.
The portal went offline on Sunday. Its closure is rooted in an agreement Yahoo made last year with Alibaba Group, which has control over the Yahoo brand in the country.
For years now, Alibaba has operated Yahoo's China business as part of $1 billion deal investment from the U.S. company made back in 2005. In exchange, Yahoo acquired a 40 percent stake in Alibaba.
