RE: Looking for help against Chinese Hacking Team

Harvey,

Out of curiosity, how do you know that your attackers are Chinese, and not
some pimple-faced kid living next door to you?

Once someone get's in there are a number of ways to persist beyond a
reformat and reinstall.  It is pretty much standard practice today for a
rootkit to copy itself to your backup, to removable media, to accessible
file shares and other storage.  Is it possible that your "Chinese" hackers
keep getting in because they never left?

Regards,

George.
