Chinese Hack New York Times

Rick Zeman writes “According to a headline article in the New York Times, they admit to being hacked by the Chinese, and covers the efforts of Mandiant to investigate, and then to eradicate their custom Advanced Persistent Threats (APT). This was alleged to be in reaction to an article which details the sleazy business dealings of the family of Wen Jiabao, China’s newest Prime Minister. China’s Ministry of National Defense said in denial, ‘Chinese laws prohibit any action including hacking that damages Internet security.'” Update: 01/31 15:00 GMT by T : The Times used Symanetic’s suite of malware protection software; Symantec has issued a statement that could be taken as slightly snippy about its role in (not) preventing the spyware from taking hold.
