Chinese Spies Inside Google?

Google is investigating whether one or more employees may have helped facilitate a cyber-attack that the U.S search giant said it was a victim of in mid-December, two sources told Reuters on Monday.

The sources told Reuters that the attack, which targeted people who have access to specific parts of Google networks, may have been facilitated by people working in Google China's office.

"We're not commenting on rumor and speculation. This is an ongoing investigation, and we simply cannot comment on the details," a Google spokeswoman said.

Local Chinese media, citing unnamed sources, reported that some Google China employees were denied access to internal networks after Jan. 13, while some staff were put on leave and others transferred to different offices in Google's Asia Pacific operations.
