Tibetan government-in-exile's site hit by hackers
LONDON (AP) - Security researchers say the website of Tibet's government-in-exile has been rigged to infect the computers of Chinese-speaking visitors, the latest in a series of cyberattacks against Tibetan activists.
Kaspersky Lab said on Tuesday that attackers modified the Chinese-language website of the Central Tibetan Administration to infect visitors with rogue software.
The attackers' identity is unknown, but politically active Tibetans have frequently been targeted by a wide-ranging electronic espionage campaign that many blame on Beijing.
Kaspersky said these particular hackers have been active for years.
