The ministry and Finnish intelligence services have announced that foreign spies have been conducting extensive cyber espionage operations against the foreign ministry for years. Sensitive information was accessed by the spies. Two instances of spying were discovered. In the first case, the police began investigating the attack after they were tipped off by another country, and during this investigation they discovered the second, more serious security breach. The perpetrator of the operation has not been named.
