Two Google researchers, Shane Huntley and Morgan Marquis-Boire, reported that 21 of the top 25 news organisations in the world have been victims of hackers. These hackers either work for, or support, a government. The two researchers have been talking about this on Friday at the Black Hat hackers conference in Singapore.
Huntley told Reuters:
"If you're a journalist or a journalistic organization we will see state-sponsored targeting and we see it happening regardless of region, we see it from all over the world both from where the targets are and where the targets are from,"
Marquis-Boire said that these attacks normally come through emails and according to him, this is only the "the tip of the iceberg" because state sponsored hackers can find several other ways to attack journalists.
