ツイッターの攻撃も中国なの?:NYT, WSJ, Post and Twitter? US Media under Attack from Chinese Hackers

Within the last two weeks, the New York Times and Wall Street Journal have chronicled breaches of their systems[...] This attack was not the work of amateurs, and we do not believe it was an isolated incident. The attackers were extremely sophisticated, and we believe other companies and organizations have also been recently similarly attacked. For that reason we felt that it was important to publicize this attack while we still gather information, and we are helping government and federal law enforcement in their effort to find and prosecute these attackers to make the Internet safer for all users.

ここ2週間、ニューヨーク・タイムズ、ウォールストリート・ジャーナルが自社システムが侵入された経緯を報じた。[...] 今回の攻撃はアマチュアのものではなく、単発とも思えない。攻撃側は極めて高度な技術を有しており、他の企業・団体も最近同様の攻撃を受けている。そのため本件はまだ調査中の段階だが、情報を公にするのが先決と判断した。全ユーザーにとってネットがより安全な場所になるよう攻撃者の特定・告訴に向けた米政府・連邦捜査当局の捜査にも現在協力しているところだ。- Twitter Blog

All fingers are pointing at China.

UPDATE:  Now, The Washington Post has come out and said they'd also been targeted. ワシントン・ポストにも同様の被害。
