Chinese hackers hitting many more places than Japan

TAIPEI — Computer networks of the Diet and Japan's largest defense contractor have been attacked by alleged Chinese hackers, but Japan is not the only target in the region.

A top Taiwanese official in charge of information security said recently that China has some 900,000 hackers with "close ties to the Chinese government or military."
Among them, about 70,000 to 80,000 are in the military or law enforcement agencies, while 500,000 to 600,000 others are civilians organized like military units who are rewarded for their online forays.
ritain's cybersecurity chief, Maj. Gen. Jonathan Shaw, warned Thursday that foreign hackers are stealing valuable commercial information from British companies.
"The biggest threat to this country by cyber is not military, it is economic," he said, adding that China poses the biggest threat.
