八问 GlobalWebIndex

GlobalWebIndex于本周发表了世界互联网使用状况的最新报告,其中关于中国的部分令人震惊。该报告认为Twitter(推特),Facebook(脸书)和Google+的中国用户增长迅速(如下图)。但有一个问题即这些网站在中国都无法直接访问,因此,本站认为GlobalWebIndex所得的数据有问题(TheNextWeb也是)。

 

这份报告所展示的正是本站所希望的也是本站的目标所在,但不是事实。我们当然也希望中国的网民能自由地,畅通无阻地访问互联网。可惜他们不能!他们无法访问国外的许多网站,甚至国内网站的某些信息也无法获得。防火长城不是什么神话,它存在于现实中。中国当局将会很高兴看到该报告,并会以此证明中国不存在网络审查。
 
有鉴于此,我们有几个问题要请教GlobalWebindex:
  1. 推特,脸书和Google+上的中国注册用户有多少?你们的数据认为推特上有7千万中国用户(来源于你们的推),脸书有1亿2千5百万用户(来源于你们的推,尽管你们报告上(第17页)的数字是4以5千万),而Google+则有1亿5千万(也来源与你们的报告)。
  2. 这其中有多少活跃用户呢?你们认为推特上有3千5百40万(贵站的博客),但eMarketer认为有3千5百50万(emarketer的文章),脸书有6千3百万,Google+上有1亿6百万(都来源于贵站的报告)。跟其他国家相比,活跃用户的比例有可能这么高吗?----推特(47%),脸书(50%),Google+(71%)。
  3. 贵站报告的中国地区包括香港,澳门,台湾吗?
  4. 如果中国的推特活跃用户比美国的还多,那为什么推特上最受中国用户欢迎的帐号只有562,250个关注者呢?(而且帐号还是由外国人运营),而且它比最受美国用户欢迎的推特帐号(@ladygaga:2千9百万关注者)以及新浪微博上最有人气的帐号(姚晨:2千4百万关注者)要逊色许多!
  5. 如果脸书上有上千万中国用户,为什么他们自己的数据显示只有60多万?
  6. 如果LinkedIn.com有1千6百万中国用户,脸书则有近乎其4倍的中国用户,那为什么AlexaI的中国顶级网站排名它们分别只排第267位第482位呢?
  7. 什么是“虚拟云网络”?你们又如何用它来规避网络审查?你们调查了中国用户如何绕过防火长城吗?依我们的经验来看,像无界浏览和自由门这类免费的翻墙工具远比商业VPN更受欢迎。当然,我们缺乏这方面的数据,也希望能深入调查。
  8. 你们或者Lightspeed 公司是如何在中国开展调查的?调查问卷使用中文吗?如果是,那你们如何翻译Twitter, facebook, Google+的?问卷放在哪个网站上?该网站在中国能访问吗?

Apple blocked CNNIC CA months after MITM attacks

In March of this year, Google found unauthorized digital certificates for several Google domains. The root certificate authority for these domains was the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC). CNNIC was controlled by the Chinese government through the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and is now under the management of the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC). CNNIC was recognized by all major browsers as a trusted Certificate Authority. If CNNIC signs a fake certificate used in a man-in-the-middle attack, no browser will warn of any unusual activity unless the certificate is pinned.

Malicious Xcode could spread via download manager Xunlei

What’s at stake?

We reported last week that popular Chinese iOS apps were compromised in an unprecedented malware attack. We discovered that the source of the infection was compromised copies of Xcode hosted on Baidu Pan. Apple has published an article urging developers to download Xcode directly from the Mac App Store, or from the Apple Developer website and validate signatures. We’ve now discovered that even if a developer uses a download link seemingly from Apple, he might still be possible to obtain a compromised copy of Xcode.

Please note that we do not have evidence that such attacks has happened. But it is an easy attack that anyone can implement.

How does it work?

This compromise happened because of Xunlei. Xunlei is the most popular download manager in China. Much of its popularity is due to the fact they can accelerate download speeds by pulling resources from other Xunlei users as well as cached copies on the Xunlei server. All of this, however, is invisible to users. Users can simply enter a regular http download address into Xunlei  download manager and the download will start. Chinese developers were using direct download addresses such as http://adcdownload.apple.com/Developer_Tools/Xcode_7/Xcode_7.dmg to download Xcode.
