Companies vowing for government contracts boast, “We can physically locate anyone who spreads a rumor on the Internet,” said a salesman whose company’s services include monitoring online postings and pinpointing who has been saying what about whom.

Per the NYTimes:

The culture of hacking in China is not confined to top-secret military compounds where hackers carry out orders to pilfer data from foreign governments and corporations.
