Washington Post Website Slow Due to Hackers Attack


The Washington Post’s website sustained third attack in the past three years, usernames and passwords were stolen and the IT specialist still evaluate the extend of the damage. However, there is still no evidence that essential information such as credit card data or home addresses has been compromised. According to this the hackers breached the servers and accessed employee login data. There are some evidence that Chinese hackers might be responsible, since the attack was initiated by a server controlled by foreign employees. Recently, this year, the New York Times was also targeted by Chinese hackers. Back in 2011, there was a breach into the Post’s Jobs website that resulted a steal of around about 1.27 million user credentials.
