in January 12th, we announced on this blog that Google and more than and 20 other U.S. companies had been a Chinese from cyber attacks, in our investigation, we have found evidence that several ten Chinese related human rights activists Gmail account attacks, these attacks mostly through phishing scams or malware a computer. We also made clear, these attacks are occurring in Chinese over the past year to include such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google continue to blockade the document and Blogger free speech website, we come to the conclusion that we cannot continue censoring our results on Google.cn.
so today we no longer filter our search services, that is, Google search on, Google news and Google image service. Users visiting Google.cn are now being redirected to Google.com.hk, where we provide uncensored China, specifically for the user to design the search simplified Chinese results, these results are provided by the server in Hongkong. Users in Hongkong will continue to receive existing uncensored traditional Chinese services from Google.com.hk. Due to the increased load on our Hongkong servers, as well as the complexity of these changes, users may see some service or find some products in the later, we temporarily can not convert a complete work.
takes into account that we have done a great deal of effort in stopping the search results in Google.cn. We hope that more people in the world will have access to our services, including users in mainland China, and the Chinese government has been talking to us about the fact that self filtering is an inevitable law. We believe that this provides a new approach to simplify the review from the Google.com.hk is a wise solution to the challenges we face, it is perfectly legitimate, meaningful increase in Chinese information will be obtained. We very much hope that the Chinese government respects our decision, even though we all know that it can block our services at any time. As a result, we will carefully monitor access issues and create a new web page, which we will update every day, so that you can see the services provided by Google in china.
in Google’s other businesses, we intend to continue to work in the development of China, but also to maintain the mission there
