Washington, D.C.-Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Palo Alto), a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement in response to Google's announcement of a cyberattack emanating from China:
"I'm deeply disturbed that yet another wave of attacks is coming from China. This raises serious national security concerns. I commend Google for coming forward with information about this attack and for cooperating with law enforcement officials to investigate the origin and nature it. It is important that companies continue to be transparent and open about cyberthreats.
"For far too long, cyberattackers have hidden in the shadows. These kind of attacks are unacceptable and undermine confidence in the global economy. I urge other companies possessing such information to come forward to help the government identify the source of these attacks, so that the criminals can be held accountable for their actions."
