The WSJ reported that the like NYT, hackers spied on their coverage specifically related to China for last four months.

The Chinese response over hacking allegation remains the same, calling it:

Groundless” and “totally irresponsible”. China is also a victim of hacking attacks. Chinese laws clearly forbid hacking attacks, and we hope relevant parties takes a responsible attitude on this issue.

On the other side, WSJ’s representatives are sticking with their allegations, saying that:

Evidence shows that infiltration efforts target the monitoring of the Journal’s coverage of China, and are not an attempt to gain commercial advantage or to misappropriate customer information.

Yesterday New York Times blamed China for infiltrating its computers, hacking the passwords of its 53 employees and spying on emails/news specifically related to China and Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, about his friends and relatives allege corruption of billions of dollars in a business deals.

China has been accused of conducting cyber attacks by many other countries such as India, UK, Israel, Australia, US and Japan. Yet the Chinese government has denied all the accusations and allegations.
