Mortimer.CA writes “Last year researchers discovered a giant electronic spying operation they dubbed GhostNet. Now, after a further year’s worth of research, Infowar Monitor has released a new report. The report (Scribbed PDF) documents a complex ecosystem of cyber espionage that systematically targeted and compromised computer systems in India, the Offices of the Dalai Lama, the United Nations, and several other countries. While the servers are in China, the report’s authors say that there is ‘no evidence in this report of the involvement of the People’s Republic of China or any other government in the shadow network.’ Furthermore, the ‘intruders even stole documents related to the travel of NATO forces in Afghanistan, illustrating that even though the Indian government was the primary target of the attacks, one gap in computer security can leave many nations exposed.’”
