If Chinese hacking is an area of interest, this is likely a blog well worth watching.

Great find on the China hacker/security blogs, Kris. Also, a quick reminder that our online China seminar is one week from today, if you're still interested in joining us.

Thanks, Jeff! Are you still accepting requests for invitations to the event? If so, can you post the link here? It sounds like it is going to be a really interesting brief on China.
