China’s Military Says Website had 2.3 Million Attacks

China’s website is reported to have been the victim of cyber attacks. From Reuters:

A website set up by China’s Defense Ministry said it was hit by 2.3 million hacker attacks in its first month of operation, but none of them were successful.

Website editor Ji Guilin was quoted as saying the site (www.mod.gov.cn) had been popular with less malign visitors as well, drawing 1.25 billion visits in the three months since its August 20 launch.

Earlier, the official English-language China Daily put the number of hacker attacks at 230 million. That figure appeared wrong because it would equate to more than 5,000 attacks per minute.
