Chinese hackers target US Chamber of Commerce
The Wall Street Journal is reporting today, in a story by Siobhan Gorman, that hackers from China have breached the systems of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, with the story (paywall) link here. Attackers gained access to information on three million members.
The story is front page news on today’s WSJ in print.
It’s a bit ironic, because the US Chamber of Commerce has attracted controversy for its support of the Stop Online Piracy Bill (SOPA) before the House in Congress, a bill which Internet free speech advocates can cause many contingent problems.
