Major Newspapers Hacked

Remember newspapers? Yeah well, believe it or not there are actually people that still read them. And apparently, there are other people that don’t like them. Like, at all. Over the weekend, a cyber-attacker took aim on the printing and delivery systems of a slew of news rags, including the LA Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun.

The LA Times reported that the attack, which appeared to originate outside the US, caused distribution cancellations or delays for numerous papers that share its production facilities, including the Wall Street Journal. The only good news is that the attack was limited to production and did not compromise any sensitive customer data. Where’s Clark Kent when you need him?
