Virus hit the Spanish Ministry of Defense’s electronic network this month to steal military technology secrets, the Spanish newspaper El Pais reported on Tuesday, quoting sources leading the investigation that it suspected a foreign country was involved. A ministry spokesman said the ministry would not comment.

The virus was apparently sent by e-mail and first detected in early March, the newspaper said. But it may have been months without being discovered by an internal network used by more than 50,000 people.

Although the network does not contain classified information, the newspaper said its sources were concerned that the virus could spread to other networks in order to access information related to clandestine military technology.

The investigation has not yet determined who was responsible for the crime, but the sources told the newspaper that the crime was technically more complex than that of ordinary infiltrators. “There is a state behind it,” she said.
