Yahoo labelled ‘reckless’ by Yahoo’s Chinese partner, Alibaba, for backing Google
Yahoo’s Chinese partner has issued a scathing criticism of the US technology company calling it ‘reckless’ for publicly supporting Google’s threat to quit the country in protest over a wave of Chinese cyberattacks.
Alibaba Group, in which Yahoo holds a 40%, said it had “communicated to Yahoo that Yahoo’s statement that it is ‘aligned’ with the position Google took last week was reckless given the lack of facts in evidence. Alibaba doesn’t share this view”.
Yahoo is believed to have also been targeted in the cyberattacks that Google says prompted its public challenge to Beijing and last week it issued a statement supporting Google’s position.
