Dalai  Lama
New Delhi, Apr 1: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Tuesday, Mar 31 called for an investigation into reports of spill of information from the Tibetan website by China.

"Some individuals want to see me and want to correspond with our concerned officials, that information has been reached to Chinese hands. I call for a thorough investigation into reports of spill of information from the Tibetan website by China," the Dalai Lama told reporters at a press conference here.

A computer located in the private office of the Dalai Lama was infected with a virus. Reportedly, this virus was capable of 'phoning home', which means stealing information such as e-mail lists with thousands of names and negotiating position documents from the machine and sending it to those in control of the virus.

A report from the Toronto-based Munk Center for International Studies in Toronto had noted that at least 1,295 computers in 103 countries were breached by the electronic spying, which it said was based in China but could not be definitively linked to the government.
