It looks like any other Shanghai office block but a nondescript tower has been identified as the nerve centre of one of the world's most dangerous military cyber-hacking operations.

American computer analysts have traced more than 100 attacks on government departments, companies and journalists to the site of the 12-storey building about 40 minutes outside Shanghai's city centre.

A 60-page report by Mandiant, a computer security company, said the headquarters of People's Liberation Army Unit 61398 was located in the compound.
