China Defense Ministry Web Site Target of Hackers, Xinhua Says

The Web site of China’s Ministry of National Defense is the target of “thousands” of attacks by overseas hackers each day, the official Xinhua News Agency reported, citing Ji Guilin, chief editor of the site.

The number of attacks on the Web site, first opened in August, has declined since its first month of operation, the Beijing-based news service reported late yesterday. During the site’s first month of operation, it was the target of 2.3 million cyber attacks, Xinhua cited Ji as saying.
