Germans spot Chinese spy attacks

Germany joined a group of at least four other countries that have been targeted by hackers apparently located in China, according to a media report published on Monday.

The report, which came in this week's edition of Der Spiegel, fingered the world's largest nation as the source of Internet attacks which have stolen sensitive data from German government ministries. The article described the hallmarks of targeted Trojan-horse programs that have previously attacked -- and likely continue to attack -- companies and government agencies in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, according to computer-security experts.
