The Finns just can’t catch a break these days:

Citing unnamed sources, Finnish television channel MTV3 reports (Google Translate) that the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs was penetrated by malware over a period of four years. The malware specifically targeted communications between Finland and the European Union. MTV3 adds that the breach was discovered earlier this year and that the Finnish government suspects Russian or Chinese intelligence agencies to be behind the breach.

It’s important to remember that our own NSA isn’t the only agency up to all sorts of dirty tricks.
