Visitors to this month's Olympic Games in Beijing may have more than 
smog to worry about.

"We can see aggressive espionage" in China, said David Rice, a network 
security expert who heads the Monterey Group, a cybersecurity consulting 
firm in Monterey, Calif. "Attendees' [digital] devices will be embedded 
or compromised in one way or another," he warned.

China and the United States perceive communications networks in 
different ways. In America, such networks are privately held means of 
personal and business contact. In China, the government owns - and 
watches - the communications system.

"In China, networks are for state-sponsored monitoring of any type of 
communications," Mr. Rice said. He devoted part of a chapter in his new 
book, "Geekonomics: The Real Cost of Insecure Software" [1] (Addison 
Wesley, $29.99), to a discussion of how rogue programs can be implanted 
in electronic devices to wreak havoc.
