BBC News - Shadow cyber spy network revealed

BBC News - Shadow cyber spy network revealed: "A 'complex cyber-espionage' network that penetrated various organisations including the Office of the Dalai Lama, has been uncovered by researchers.
The shadow network targeted government, business, and academic computers at the United Nations and the Embassy of Pakistan in the US, among others.
It was used to steal at least 1,500 emails from the Office of the Dalai Lama, the researchers said.
The attacks were thought to originate in the city of Chengdu in China.
Specifically, the researchers, from the Information Warfare Monitor and the Shadowserver Foundation, said they had evidence of 'links between the Shadow network and two individuals living in Chengdu'.
Information Warfare Monitor comprises researchers from Ottawa-based think tank SecDev Group and the University of Toronto's Munk Centre for International Studies."
