Reuters: Today, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission will release a report which details several computer security incidents, including one in which U.S. Internet traffic was incorrectly routed through China. The incident, which took place last April, lasted approximately eighteen minutes after China Telecom sent incorrect routing information to servers. The move caused traffic headed to some military, government and corporate sites in the U.S. to go through China.
"Evidence related to this incident does not clearly indicate whether it was perpetrated intentionally and, if so, to what ends. However, computer security researchers have noted that the capability could enable severe malicious activities," the report said.
