Operation Aurora is a cyber attack which began in mid-December 2009 and continues into February 2010. The attack was first publicly disclosed by Google on January 12 in a blog post. Google said the attack originated in China.
The attack has been aimed at dozens of other organizations, of which Adobe Systems, Juniper Networks and Rackspace have publicly confirmed that they were targeted. According to media reports, Yahoo, Symantec, Northrop Grumman and Dow Chemical were also among the targets.
I have been having some problems accessing Google web sites. An Opera page advertising Yahoo sometimes pops up when I click Speed Dial.
I can't say that I have experienced a great deal of difficulty with Symantec, Northrop Grumman or Dow Chemicals. But then I don't visit Symantec, Northrop Grumman and Dow Chemical much if ever.
I'd like to think that it isn't all my fault. So perhaps my coincidental melodramatics are just coincidental melodramatics.
