According to the Times, the hackers first broke into their computer system in September, as the report on Mr Wen was nearing completion.
The report, which was dismissed as a "smear" by the Chinese government, said Mr Wen's relatives had amassed assets worth at least $2.7bn (ÂŁ1.7bn) through business dealings. It did not accuse the Chinese premier of wrongdoing.

The Information Technicians should really give this some thought, about hackers. I would think that even SermonAudio and other religious organizations that have an Internet presence could sometime tweak the interests of Iranian Muhammadans or other anti-Christians or even just a religiously indifferent, bored group of teenagers who are out to cause trouble. The ITs of various Christian groups should be doing just a little research (and backing up perhaps any and every thing to a secure offline setup) on outside attacks. Hacking is bad enough when you do know about it, no doubt even worse if you have files that are important to you which are compromised and/or destroyed.
