Major cyber spy network uncovered
Original post made by Sharon, Midtown, on Mar 29, 2009
" An electronic spy network, based mainly in China, has infiltrated computers from government offices around the world, Canadian researchers say.
They said the network had infiltrated 1,295 computers in 103 countries. ----
By installing malware on compromised computers, hackers were able to take control of them to send and receive classified data.
In this case, the software also gave hackers the ability to use audio and video recording devices to monitor the rooms the computers were in."
So the Chinese spooks can now turn our computers in to audio visual monitors for industrial and economic political espionage.
So if you want a confidential meeting you must turn off the computers?
