The government of Japan has claimed that hacker attacks on its financial sector represent retaliation from China over a land dispute.
Recently, the sites of nineteen Japanese banks went offline due to hacker attacks originating from China. The National Police Agency announced that many of the targets had been named on hacking group websites. In the meantime, other outfits like the Tokyo Institute of Technology claimed they had been hacked and this resulted in the theft of personal information. Moreover, other government departments were also targeted during DDoS attacks.
Local press points out that a number of sites were altered, with a picture of the Chinese flag being demonstrated on one of them. Although the cyber attacks are believed to have ceased, the government of Japan is warning the entities to take some precautions against possible further threats.
The hacker attacks in question are thought to be protesting the nationalization of islands in the East China Sea – Diaoyu and Senaku – that were earlier privately owned. The decision of the Japanese authorities to buy the resource rich islands has caused outrage in China and consequently led to a number of anti-Japan protests.
In addition, such protests have forced a few Japanese companies operating in China to suspend factor production. For instance, Panasonic became one of the firms that had to choose to temporarily suspend production last week. The international giant admitted that workers in its Chinese component factories had simply sabotaged the company’s operations.

|China better watch out.. Japan might sick Godzilla on them..|
|1.3 Billion VS Godzilla. Go China. Japan has invaded and tortured chinese for too long. Now China should stand-up and give Japan a taste of their own actions. No worry about the U.S. getting involved. Obama ain't got the courage. If there were no resources on the land that Japan has stolen this would not even be an issue.|

|Apparently after WW2 america was in Possesion of the Island for a few decades, and then they gave it up. At about the same time oil was discovered in a survey off its coast. They are puny islands way off the coast that nobody cares to live on or cares about. Its only the oil they care about and any chinese protesters are likely fake or brainwashed pawns being played like a violin by the chinese gov't or corporations who want to get the oil rights. Unless that also is a sham and the real underlying motive is to lead up to world war 3 with iran in the middle east and china japan in Asia. Russia would back china and America Japan. Possibly,, I dunno.||
