Japanese Concerns with Chinese "Hackers"

The East-Asia-Intel has a story concerning possible Chinese cyber attacks against Japanese computer systems.

The report is somewhat contradictory saying:
"The report said that during the first six months of 2007, Japan's National Police Agency detected as many as 2,112 hacker attacks from China on a single day."
and then says:
"Japanese agencies have not detected attacks by Chinese on their networks but some experts say the Chinese conducted clandestine break-ins that left no traces."
The report also discusses Japanese concerns that a large number on Chinese IT technicians working in Japan increase the risk of cyber attacks both by the Chinese government and individuals.
