China has computer spy network
Raseachers from Canada claim that they have information proving that they have found a network that has control over 1000 computers worldwide.
The Information Warfare Monitor project, based in Toronto, said the group has control over 1,295 computers in 103 countries and they are said to be computers from government offices around the world - incldung offices directly linked with the Dalai Lama.
Researchers say they have no conclusive evidence China's government was behind it.
Beijing has also denied involvement.
The report comes after a 10-month investigation by the Information Warfare Monitor (IWM), which comprises researchers from Ottawa-based think tank SecDev Group and the University of Toronto's Munk Centre for International Studies.
They were acting on a request from the Tibetan spiritual leader's office to check whether the computers of his Tibetan exile network had been infiltrated.
Researchers found that ministries of foreign affairs of Iran, Bangladesh, Latvia, Indonesia, Philippines, Brunei, Barbados and Bhutan, appear to had been targeted.
Hacked systems were also discovered in the embassies of India, South Korea, Indonesia, Romania, Cyprus, Malta, Thailand, Taiwan, Portugal, Germany and Pakistan.
