A congressman said Wednesday the FBI has found that four of his government computers have been hacked by sources working out of China. Rep. Frank Wolf, a Virginia Republican, said that similar incidents - also originating from China - have taken place on computers of other members of the House and at least one House committee. A spokesman for Wolf said the four computers in his office were being used by staff members working on human rights issues and that the hacking began in August 2006. Wolf is a longtime critic of the Chinese government's human rights record. --- Posted by Tian Sun
