The central government said it would use "forceful measures" to stop international computer hacking after media reports in Germany said Chinese hackers linked to the army had accessed German government computer systems, the Financial Times reported. "We are willing to maintain co-operation with the German government and take firm and effective action to prevent all hacking acts that threaten computer systems," said Premier Wen Jiabao after a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is visiting China, on Monday. Merkel brought the hacking issue up with Wen, saying: "In order to move relations forward … we must together respect a [common] set of game rules." Wen said he had read the article in German magazine Der Spiegel reporting that the Chinese hackers had been traced to Guangzhou and Lanzhou, operation centers for the People's Liberation Army.
