China seen as growing sourceof cyber attacks, Symantec report says

Posted by Author on April 19, 2009

San Francisco Chronicle, Sunday, April 19, 2009 –

A Symantec
report released Tuesday said 22 percent of all attacks targeting governments around the world originated in China.

Symantec’s technical director, Zulfikar Ramzan, said the increase in attacks originating from China mirrors the rise in Internet use in China. “I think what we’re seeing is that there are a lot more machines that are online,” Ramzan said. “Those machines then become more easy to compromise,” he told Congressional Quarterly.
Notable cyberattacks

2007: Chinese hackers broke into the Pentagon’s computer network, as well as systems of the German government.

2008: A virus infiltrated the U.S. military’s computer system. The Pentagon blamed the use of external drives by troops in the field.

Russian spies are blamed for crippling the civilian and military computer networks of Georgia prior to the invasion of that country.

2009: The Internet network of Kyrgyzstan is shut down in January. The worms are traced to Russian servers.
