Web site of China-based journalist club attacked

An organization for foreign journalists based in China has become the latest victim of cyberattacks targeting the Web sites or e-mail accounts of human rights groups and reporters focused on China.
Cyberattacks linked to China have gained more attention since Google Inc. accused Chinese hackers in January of trying to plunder its software coding and of hijacking the Gmail accounts of human rights activists protesting Beijing's policies.
The Foreign Correspondents' Club of China said in an e-mailed statement yesterday that its Web site was taken down because of denial-of-service attacks apparently launched over the last two days by computers within China and in the United States.
