China hackers target German government computers: report

Posted by Author on August 26, 2007

DPA, via EarthTimes.org-

Berlin – Chinese hackers have infiltrated German government computers with spy programmes, the news magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday. The report said the malicious programmes, called Trojans, were discovered when experts examined computers in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s office complex and several government ministries.

Trojans pretend to be useful but actually install software that allows unauthorized remote access to a victim’s system.

The first Trojans were found several months ago, but attempts are still being made to sneak such programmes into government computers via the internet, Der Spiegel said on its website.

A spokesman for the Interior Ministry declined to confirm the report.

He said that preventive measures had been introduced in government offices to guard against Trojan programmes. So far no damage had occurred, he added.

The magazine said German intelligence services suspect hackers in the Chinese army are behind the onslaught.

In addition to the Federal Chancellery, Trojans were also found in computers at the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Economics and the Research and Development Ministry, the report said.

The disclosure comes a day before Merkel leaves for Beijing on a six-day visit to China and Japan.
