Google says Vietnam mine opponents under cyber attack


Internet giant Google says malicious software has been used to spy on tens of thousands of Vietnamese web users.

The company said the cyber attacks appeared to target opponents of bauxite mining in Vietnam.

Google said the malware was "damaging" but less sophisticated than recent attacks at the heart of the company's dispute with China.

Tim Bowler reports.
