Almost one million Chinese computers were hit by viruses during last week’s national holidays, state media has reported.
Three different types of viruses attacked computers during the holiday week, Xinhua news agency said.
It is not the first time China’s web users have faced problems recently.
A Pacific earthquake damaged undersea cables earlier this year, slowing down internet lines and forcing many people to start using their old fax machines.
