According to NZ's Clark won't identify hackers, New Zealand is the latest victim of the someone's cyber brigades:
New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark says she knows which countries tried to hack into her government's computers but is refusing to name names.
Clark on Tuesday confirmed foreign spies had tried to hack into government computers, but they failed to gain access to any classified information.
She said she knew which governments were involved but refused to name them, saying: "That's not the way intelligence matters are handled".
That's interesting. Everyone else likes to point the finger! More on that in a future post. So is China involved? According to New Zealand: China's Spying On Us, Too the answer is yes:
China is once again being blamed for cyberattacks on a foreign country, with New Zealand secret service officials saying the Chinese were behind an attack on its systems...
However, like the US case, a government official identified the source of the hack through the media. In an interview with The Dominion Post, Security Intelligence Service director Warren Tucker hinted that the Communist country was behind it.
We've almost got all of the "five eyes" now -- US, UK, New Zealand... what about Canada and Australia?
