Hackers broke into a senior State Council official's computer which contained drafts of Premier Wen Jiabao's government work report for this year. They copied the report and other top-secret documents, mainland sources say. Sources say the hacking was carried out from Taiwan. Senior government officials have two computers - one they use for surfing the Net and the other for top-secret documents. This particular official used the wrong computer on the Net. The official has been severely punished.
