The e-mail accounts of eight foreign journalists working in China and Taiwan were hacked recently, leading Yahoo to suspend several of the accounts last week, the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of China (FCCC) said Wednesday.
“We have confirmed eight cases in which journalists in China and Taiwan have had their e-mail accounts hacked in recent weeks, with several accounts disabled by Yahoo on March 25,” the FCCC said in an e-mail sent to members.
Among the hacked e-mail accounts, the settings of one account were also modified to forward all e-mails to another e-mail address, it said.
