Canadians find vast computer spy network


www.reuters.com

Canadian researchers have uncovered a vast electronic spying operation that infiltrated computers and stole documents from government and private offices around the world, including those of the Dalai Lama, The New York Times reported on Saturday.

In a report provided to the newspaper, a team from the Munk Center for International Studies in Toronto said at least 1,295 computers in 103 countries had been breached in less than two years by the spy system, which it dubbed GhostNet.

Embassies, foreign ministries, government offices and the Dalai Lama's Tibetan exile centers in India, Brussels, London and New York were among those infiltrated, said the researchers, who have detected computer espionage in the past.

They found no evidence U.S. government offices were breached.

The researchers concluded that computers based almost exclusively in China were responsible for the intrusions, although they stopped short of saying the Chinese government was involved in the system, which they described as still active.

"We're a bit more careful about it, knowing the nuance of what happens in the subterranean realms," said Ronald Deibert, a member of the Munk research group, based at the University of Toronto.

"This could well be the CIA or the Russians. It's a murky realm that we're lifting the lid on."

I give them the rose of a certain finger, then flash my bouquet at them.
I often leave really nasty letters on my computer telling them the difference between nazis and psychos and true heros.

All you would get is a highly targets advertising campaign for hemroid treatments.

You could have a national / global disinfo the buggers day - but every day is a disinfo day

Wow, go Munk CIS! I didn't expect this from that facility, they're normally just gathering and discussing politics and the like.

I would have expected this from CSIS instead.


China eh? I wonder if it's the usual corporate elites funding this, or if perhaps the government has become a little more active in these areas.

My money is on corporate elites wanting to dig up anything they can use on those who are "bad for business". That's usually their motive.

munk saying its the cia?

well the cia are used as a whipping for the ais actions.

so here i suspect one of the ais spy networks was uncovered.....or their ai itself has been caught ghosting around the net......so an excuse must be made or someone framed.

Of course the spy networks are still alive, and increasingly operating online. Its not just the chinese, its all big countries. Everyone trying to get their piece. More and more will be online hacking and surveillance, with a decreasing role of the world of james bond with fancy spy gadgets and hot chicks..
