Finland hit by hackers

Written by Nick Farrell

Fin end of the wedge

Foreign spooks from China and Russia carried out large-scale hacking into government communications, and a Finnish TV station.

Finland's foreign minister Erkki Tuomioja said the breach of the Foreign Ministry's data network was discovered in spring, and Finland's intelligence service was investigating it as a case of serious espionage. Broadcaster MTV3 reported the hacking incident which until know had been kept under wraps, probably because everyone thought the Americans had done it.

Tuomioja declined to comment on suspects, but MTV3 had earlier said Chinese and Russian spies agents may have been involved. The report said they had gained access to its network for years and seem to have targeted communications between Finnish and European Union officials. Tuomioja insisted that there was nothing classified.
