Cyber Attacks: Civil liberties group calls on Google to stop helping NSA

Source: Grant Gross, PC Advisor - PC Advisor reports the American Civil Liberties Union is asking its members to contact Google executives and ask them not to work with the US National Security Agency to investigate cyberattacks allegedly coming from China.

The civil liberties advocacy group, in an email sent to members this week, asked them to object to the "troubling" partnership. The Washington Post reported last Thursday that Google and the NSA were drafting an agreement in which the spy agency would help the company investigate a major cyberattack that allegedly originated from within China.
