Cyberattack on the Guardian ⇥ semafor.com
Speaking of the Guardian, it is apparently the victim of an ongoing attack which is primarily affecting its print and office systems.
Max Tani, Semafor:
Guardian staffers who spoke to Semafor said there seemed to be a distinction between the systems that were working and those that continued to be shuttered. The paper’s email and digital publishing systems have operated normally.
But some of the more antiquated systems, including company expenses and some elements of print production, remain buggy. Columnist picture bylines have disappeared in print for the moment as the result of the hack, a blow for some of the egos of the paper’s opinion writers.
It sounds like even most staff at the paper do not have a good sense of what is going on despite the attack beginning weeks ago.
