A vast electronic spying operation has infiltrated computers and has stolen documents from hundreds of government and private offices around the world, including those of the Dalai Lama, Canadian researchers have concluded.The Toronto academic researchers who are reporting on the spying operation dubbed GhostNet include, from left, Ronald J. Deibert, Greg Walton, Nart Villeneuve and Rafal A. Rohozinski.

In a report to be issued this weekend, the researchers said that the system was being controlled from computers based almost exclusively in China, but that they could not say conclusively that the Chinese government was involved

Lookit this..

just a few months ago in a room at the foothills of the Himalayas, with a Canadian researcher watching a ‘ghost' steal a file from the Dalai Lama.

Greg Walton showed up in Dharamsala, India in September of last year to determine whether somebody was trying to spy on the Dalai Lama's computer. With a background in international relations and computer science, the British-born 34-year-old had been advising the Tibetan government on security issues since the late 1990s. The Dalai Lama's Geneva-based adviser had recently asked him to check whether Tibetan government computers had been the subject of an attack.
Man.. suddenly i feel so.. insignificant... He's my age!

OK Let's see. A computer based in China stole documents from the Dalai Lama and they are not sure the Chinese government is involved? Maybe it's PETA then.
