Dec 29, 2005

Chinese computer programmers may have hacked into the Web site of a Japanese daily, according to local media Thursday.

Parts of the online edition of Asahi Shimbun were tampered with via a computer server based in China, according to Japanese police reports.

The authorities said that on Oct. 17 the top page of Asahi Shimbun's education site was automatically redirected to another site that would infect the computer with a virus.
