New Zealand: China's Spying On Us, Too

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. The country's prime minister Helen Clark said in a press conference Wednesday that no classified information had been compromised, however she did say foreign-government spies were behind the attack. Clark added that the government knew who was the source, but wouldn't elaborate.

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. If true, and China was behind the attack, New Zealand becomes the fourth known target of Chinese government hackers behind the US, UK, and Germany.
