John Markoff and David Barboza have a story at the New York Times titled "Two Chinese Schools Said to Be Tied to Online Attacks".

The attacks may have started in April 2009.

"The Chinese schools involved are Shanghai Jiaotong University and the Lanxiang Vocational School, according to several people with knowledge of the investigation who asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the inquiry."

"A report on Chinese online warfare prepared for the U.S.-China Economic Security Review Commission in October 2009 by Northrop Grumman identified six regions in China with military efforts to engage in such attacks. Jinan, site of the vocational school, was one of the regions."
