China’s Baidu sues US company over cyber attack - 21-January-2010, 07:14

Text of report in English by official Chinese news agency Xinhua (New China News Agency)

BEIJING, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) - China’s leading Internet search engine, Baidu, has filed a lawsuit in a New York court against a US firm that managed its domain registration, Baidu said in a statement on Wednesday. Baidu is seeking damages from its US domain name registration service provider Register.com, Inc., following an attack on its website w.w.w.bai..du.com last week, the Beijing-based company said in the statement.
Baidu’s website was paralysed for several hours after a cyber-attack on Jan. 12, denying users from many places around the world access. The attackers posted on the site a message in red saying, “This site has been hacked by Iranian Cyber Army.” It is believed the unidentified “Iranian Cyber Army” changed Baidu’s domain name server records and redirected traffic to another website.
“Register.com, Inc.’s gross negligence resulted in severe damage to the company,” said the statement. The company declined to detail its losses and it failed to disclose the damages it is seeking.
The search engine, which claims 70 per cent of China’s Internet search market, had only been down only once previously, for half an hour in December 2006.
