its systems and is considering pulling out of China altogether. The
U.S. government is taking this seriously, and Google has partnered

undercover intelligence officers from the People's Liberation Army
and the Ministry of Public Security have also approached UK

'gifts' and 'lavish hospitality.' The gifts -- cameras and memory
sticks -- have been found to contain electronic Trojan bugs which
provide the Chinese with remote access to users' computers."

Chinese government stop there?"
