Finland has been a target of a cyber espionage for years. The minister of foreign affairs Erkki Tuomioja has admitted : ”I can confirm there has been a severe and large hacking in the ministry’s data network.” The intrusion has not been discovered by the finns themselves, but by another agency reporting to CERT-FI . The malicious code use by the cybercrook is similar to the Red October malware source code . The malware was implanted in the finnish ministry of Foreign affairs network for years during the spying campaign. The actor of this crime is unknown, but the finnish television MTV3 is suspecting Russia or China.
