I'm still wondering why they were targeted.  Refused to pay ransom to
gangsters?  Hosting Tibetan or Uigur advocacy sites?  Corporate warfare?

Actually, I think that's the question that everyone is interested in. I was also thinking along the lines of ransom or corporate warfare, given the scale, duration, and sophistication of the attacks. I guess that's not something that they're going to reveal in their public report...
