For the second time in recent months, The Washington Post has experienced a breach at the hands of cyber attackers.
The paper revealed in a Wednesday article that hackers breached servers belonging to the company and in the process accessed employee’s user names and encrypted passwords.
Mandiant, an incident response and forensic firm which monitors The Post’s networks, discovered the intrusion. The breach is believed to have lasted “a few days at most,” according to a company spokeswoman, who was quoted by The Post.
