News Corp Data Breach
Corp disclosed in securities filings on Friday that they discovered an attack on one of their systems that resulted in a data breach that occurred in January of 2022. While it’s not confirmed that weak password security was the cause of this data breach it is very likely that someone had a weak password. The filing does however cite that “preliminary analysis indicates that foreign government involvement may be associated with this activity”. News Corp also mentioned that the cyberattack was persistent in nature and they are still investigating the nature, scope, duration, and impacts to their data but they believe the issue is contained.
