Hacking Row Makes China School Students’ Top Pick

There has been an increase in potential students contacting Lanxiang Vocational School, one of the institutions allegedly behind the cyberattacks on Google:

A Chinese school accused last week of links to cyberattacks on Google that have strained Sino-US ties has since received a flood of calls from students interested in attending.

The New York Times said attacks on the US internet giant, which have prompted the firm to reconsider its long-term presence in China, were traced to computers at the Lanxiang Vocational School and Shanghai Jiaotong University. Both institutions have denied involvement… “We have been receiving phone calls from all over the country asking about our computer science programme, which is one of the most popular programmes in our school,” an unnamed recruitment teacher told the state-run Global Times. A woman in the school’s enrolment office, when asked whether the number of inquiries had spiked in recent days since the report, said “yes” but declined further comment.
