Law Firm E-Security Concerns To Heat Up After Trojan Email Attack?

Legal professionals who utilize Web 2.0 and the Cloud have long been wary of the general perils of inadequate online security.

This Law.com report of a targeted trojan email attack on a Los Angeles law firm, however, obviously ups the ante and raises genuine concern about the safety of confidential client date housed by law firms in the face of sophisticated attempts to breach security walls:
A Los Angeles law firm that recently filed a $2.2 billion copyright infringement suit against the People's Republic of China said that it has become the target of cyberattacks originating in China. The e-mails sent to Gipson Hoffman & Pancione came the same week that Google declared that it would stop complying with Chinese censorship requirements for the Internet following reports that several of its computer systems had drawn cyberattacks believed to originate in China.
