Three attacks by hackers in three years on the harried Washington Post. The latest attack is thought to emanate from a server that the Post’s foreign staff uses. It spread from the first server to others.
It should be noted that staff, along with overseers in security areas had been dutifully keeping up being safe on the web.
In 2011, the Washington Post along with the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times were claimed as targets by Asian hackers.
Security firm, Mandiant keeps the watch on cyberspace for The Washington Post. Mandiant discovered this latest attack.
