jones_supa writes: The commercial broadcaster MTV3 reports that large-scale spying on IT networks at the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs was uncovered in the spring. Russia and China are suspected of responsibility for the snooping, which focused on data traffic between Finland and the EU. It has been figured that this spying network could have been running for up to four years. The espionage has been kept under wraps, with just a few key officials aware of the matter. MTV3 says that the true extent of the hacking is still not clear. Neither is it certain that the problem has been fixed. Finland Security Police (Supo) has investigation underway.
