London, UK - 6 November 2002, 16:00 GMT - South Korea, Australia, China, Taiwan and Japan have been amongst the most targeted countries in the Far East and Oceania by hackers in the first ten months of 2002. South Korea suffered 1,151 overt digital attacks followed by Australia at 1,008, China at 935, Taiwan at 887 and Japan at 683.

"Historically we have noticed digital attacks in the Far East over the China-Taiwan standoff in 1999 as well as the US-China spy plane incident in April 2001. This current wave of attacks from Malaysian and Indonesian hackers, starting from a low base in 2001, has now begun to affect the whole region and beyond," said DK Matai, Chairman and CEO of mi2g.
