Chinese cyber attacks on Western firms, governments ‘growing’: Experts
Washington: Cyber attacks on Western companies, governments and foreign-based dissidents that are believed to originate in China are growing, experts have warned.

According to one recent report, one in every three observed computer attacks in the third quarter of 2012 emanated from China.

The revelations emerge as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal claimed that their computer systems had been infiltrated by Chinese hackers.

Cyber security experts say the alleged attack on The New York Times appeared to be similar to previously reported attacks that were linked to China, CNN reports.

Security experts who helped the newspaper to counter the attacks accumulated evidence that the hackers used methods ‘associated with the Chinese military in the past’ to breach the network, The Times said.

A report last month from Akamai Technologies, an Internet services company, showed a dramatic upswing in incidents from the Asian country.

In the second quarter, 16 percent of observed cyber attacks came from China, the company said.
