Cyber Attack Disrupts U.S. Newspaper Distribution: A cyber attack which appeared to have originated outside the United States, caused major printing and delivery disruptions at the Los Angeles Times as well as quite a few other prominent U.S. newspapers.
Gee, I received my paper at the usual time with no delay whatsoever. Hell, the only thing I noticed that seemed a bit odd was the lead story was extensive coverage on William McKinley’s death and it was printed almost entirely in Russian. But other than that, I didn’t notice anything especially unusual. Hmmm…
When reporters asked about whether they were looking into the incident, a Homeland Security spokesperson said “look, our mission is to lock up children, not babysit liberal newspapers.” Anyway, who knows? Perhaps now the Times might even consider upgrading their software to something a little more current than Windows 7.
