Canadian research uncovers cyber espionage network

Canadian researchers have uncovered an internet spy network, based mostly in China, that has hacked into computers owned by governments and private organizations in 103 countries.

The findings released Sunday follow a 10-month investigation by researchers from the Ottawa-based think tank SecDev Group and the Munk Centre for International Studies at the University of Toronto.

Sorry. I’m not shocked that some nation-state is doing something. I’m only shocked that someone got around to noticing. When catsy move on from working with me to working with the citizen lab it was clear that this sort of information was not only around, but available. The chinese state can deny it. And they may be innocent. It could be another country’s initiative working via china, and china is the victim. Any state that denies that it is happening at all is lying, imho. Victim or perp.
