Update: China Linked to U.S. Lab Attacks

The New York Times is quoting a U.S. Department of Homeland Security document alleging the attacks on U.S. research labs originated from China. The article does state that China may have only been an intermediary in the attacks:
"Security researchers said the memorandum, which was obtained by The New York Times from an executive at a private company, included a list of Web and Internet addresses that were linked to locations in China. However, they noted that such links did not prove that the Chinese government or Chinese citizens were involved in the attacks. In the past, intruders have compromised computers in China and then used them to disguise their true location."
