    LOL, there was a BGP hack years back that diverted all of Google to an India ISP, at that point in time, someone just keyed in the wrong IP numbers. Then they secured BGP with local keys, only the owners of the IPs could reroute them, so my guess is someone hacked Google's keys for the IP's involved. We know China and Russia are good at spying and hacking..... Then again, someone at Google could have screwed up, or knew they were about to be fired for being too conservative.

    It figure that a Nigerian prince was involved. I’m still waiting on my $2,000,000 check from him.

    Someone sold the info to enable the hack, and walked away a wealthy person or persons.
