China denied allegations that the country was behind recent cyber attacks against hundreds of users of Google’s (GOOG.NYSE, GOOG.NASDAQ, GGQ1.FWB) email service, the Wall Street Journal reported. “Saying that the Chinese government supports hacking activity is entirely a fabrication,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei. The US internet company on Wednesday said hackers in Jinan had infiltrated the Gmail accounts of users including US government officials and Chinese activists. Google alleges the online attack originated from an area that’s home to a national security arm of the People’s Liberation Army. It is at least the third incident since early 2010 in which Google has accused China of disrupting its systems. In recent weeks, the government has acknowledged taking a more active role in policing the internet, confirming the existence of a long-rumored military unit devoted to cyberspace.
