Oz Met Office hacked

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has apparently been hacked.

China blamed for 'massive' cyber attack on Bureau of Meteorology computer

China is being blamed for a major cyber attack on the computers at the Bureau of Meteorology, which has compromised sensitive systems across the Federal Government.

Key points:

  • ABC told there is little doubt the "massive" breach came from China
  • Motivation for attack could be commercial, strategic or both
  • Bureau provides critical information to a host of agencies, including link to Defence Department
  • Could "take years and cost hundreds of millions of dollars to fix"

This seems like a bit of an odd target, doesn't it?

Possibly China may release Climategate 2 during the Paris Conference. You can dream.
