Australian Information Security Incident Reported: July 06 2018

China-based hackers have utterly compromised the computer network of the university that is home to Australia’s National Security College and the School of Strategic and Defence Studies.

The Australian National University was contacted by an intelligence agency months ago, demanding that it deal with a pervasive and persistent intrusion into its entire computer network.

In the words of one intelligence official: “China probably knows more about the ANU’s computer system than it does.”
