It's already been a busy year in the area of Internet freedom and security. First, Google reported that it, along with a bunch of other major companies, had been hacked, and pointed the finger at China. Then Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a few "Remarks on Internet Freedom" in which she pushed for one Internet, without barriers.
Separately, the Federal Trade Commission notified about 100 companies that some of their secrets had been exposed by employees who were running peer-to-peer software.

Finally the Internet security firm NetWitness said that it had figured out that 75,000 computers at 2,500 companies had been compromised with the ZeuS Trojan starting in 2008.

Nope - not a good start to 2010. I would like to think that things will quiet down some for the rest of the year but it does not look like that will happen.

In early January, Google announced that it had been hacked from China, that the hackers seemed to be after the gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists and that Google was going to review "feasibility of our business operations in China."
