Ashok Sharma, from the AP, asked me this question yesterday and here was my response from his article Dalai Lama condemns hacking of computers:
Scott Henderson, author of The Dark Visitor, a self-published book about Chinese hackers, said he thought it was feasible that the attacks described in the report could have been carried out by an individual over the course of a year or so.
Henderson said it wouldn’t be unusual for a Chinese hacker to want to infiltrate the Dalai Lama’s computers because most of the mainland hackers he has researched “place as much importance on sovereignty (over Tibet and other contentious areas) as Beijing does.”
To be fair to the researhers at IWM, they never said it was the government either. At least that is my interpretation of their conclusions.
So, do we have any evidence that this could have been done by a group other than the Chinese government?
