Google accused of ‘malicious revenge’ in China

The official newspaper of China’s ruling communist party has accused Google of seeking "malicious revenge" after a malware warning appeared by one of its Web sites in Google’s search results.

The Google notice, which said the books section of the People’s Daily site could contain malware, appeared last week and prevented some visits to the Web page because its link redirected to a Google warning, according to a local media report also posted by the People’s Daily. A site representative was cited in the report as blaming "malicious revenge from Google" and saying the paper would take actions against such "vile behavior" by the company. The paper would not rule out legal action, the representative was cited as saying.
