New York Times Accuses Chinese Military of Hacking Computer Systems [REPORT]
January 31, 2013
As one of the biggest and most brazen journalism companies in the world, The New York Times is always under a watchful eye. What makes it even more difficult for the paper to do business is that fact that it's constantly being bombarded by hackers and other outlets looking to corrupt the news.
The New York Times has published a surprising report suggesting that the government of China is responsible for a multi-month digital attack against the computer systems at the paper. The newspaper company suggests that the attacks were politically motivated, and they could be an operation of the Chinese military.
"Security experts hired by The Times to detect and block the computer attacks gathered digital evidence that Chinese hackers, using methods that some consultants have associated with the Chinese military in the past, breached The Times's network," reports the New York Times. "They broke into the e-mail accounts of its Shanghai bureau chief, David Barboza, who wrote the reports on Mr. Wen's relatives, and Jim Yardley, The Times's South Asia bureau chief in India, who previously worked as bureau chief in Beijing."
