According to Computerworld, the French government is undergoing a massive clean-up following an attack on computers at Bercy, the headquarters of the French Ministry of Economy, Finances and Industry.
Calling the attack "spectacular," Budget Minister Franois Baroin says attackers accessed mailboxes and servers over the course of several weeks. He notes that no personal tax files were targeted. Instead, Baroin says the organization of the G20, which brings together the finance ministers and central bank governors of 19 countries and the European Union, was targeted.
Baroin believes the attacks originated outside France, but an exact location has not been confirmed. Although, some suspect China, reports v3.co.uk.
