Internet search giant Google has suggested that it may withdraw from China after Chinese hackers tried to access the email accounts of human rights activists, the Wall Street Journal reported. Following an investigation, the company said it uncovered evidence that hackers originating in China had launched a sophisticated attack on dozens of Google email accounts, and may have gained limited access to two of them. David Drummond, Google senior vice president and chief legal officer, said that the hacking had "led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China". The company also suggested that it is no longer willing to censor internet search results, Drummond said."We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China," he said.
