ParisGovernment hacked: France took 10,000 government computers offline this week after discovering the biggest cyberattack it has ever experienced. Hackers took control of at least 150 computers in the Finance Ministry for several weeks before last month’s meeting of the Group of 20 industrialized nations in Paris. The “spectacular” attack was carried out by organized, determined professionals, said Budget Minister François Baroin. He said they targeted only documents related to the G-20 meeting, and that no tax or financial information on individuals was compromised. Officials believe the attack originated in China. Chinese hackers took control of computers in Canada’s finance ministry and treasury in a similar attack two months ago.
