China re-routing Euro internet traffic again

"For more than two hours on Thursday, one of China’s largest Internet providers forced a huge chunk of European mobile traffic to be rerouted through its own servers.

"China Telecom has been implicated in similar incidents before. For about 18 minutes in April 2010, roughly 15 per cent of the world’s Internet traffic suddenly traversed through Chinese servers.

"This included traffic flowing to and from U.S. government and military websites, including NASA.

"Commercial sites for companies such as Dell and Microsoft were similarly affected."

If true, this is not a million miles away from a declaration of war. 

It certainly challenges the right of Chinese Border Gateways to participate in the Internet. 

This is serious stuff !

Conceivably the Chinese could duplicate all the data thst was sent in that time and mine it for secure information.

We do the same lol.

Most of the EU data going to the US has to go through the UK first. 5 Eyes.

Perhaps RabidMongoose, however we do NOT deliberately poison the Border Gateway protocol in order to forceably divert traffic into our country !!!

We have no need too.

As the information goes down the wire we copy it. Its the copied information we divert off to GCHQ. Its called prism.

Yup - I can easily believe that. Still however, that is VERY different from what the Chinese are alleged to have done !
