Although search engine is blocked in tha majority of Chinese internet, it is still accessible at the CERNET academic network for research purposes. The users of CERTNET until recently profited from unrestricted access to Google services. However, last week their browsers started to display warning of invalid SSL certificates suggesting thet the users were targets of MitM attacks. This way, the Chinese government can retain the access to Google on the academic network while still ensuring it is not used for the activities of opposition.
