Cyberattacks against Belgium Attributed to China

Belgium has become the latest government to accuse China of attacks on their information infrastructures. As with other reports, there are no details or facts to allow proper analysis.

"Justice minister Jo Vandeurzen is reported to have claimed that the Federal Government had been targeted by Chinese hackers, backing up a separate statement by Belgium's foreign affairs minister, Karel De Grucht that his ministry had been hit by espionage in recent weeks.

"In both cases, the Belgians appear certain that the culprits were Chinese and that the Beijing authorities must know something about events, although no evidence has been offered to back up these allegations. The precise nature of the attacks has not been explained either."
