Malware Attack Struck The Los Angeles Times And Tribune Publishing On Friday


LA Times, Tribune Publishing Hit by Cyberattack Disrupting Paper Delivery

A malware attack struck the Los Angeles Times and Tribune Publishing on Friday, disrupting the distribution of the Saturday edition of papers across the country. Tribune Publishing first detected the "malware" in its computer systems on Friday that "impacted some back-office systems which are primarily used to publish and produce newspapers across our properties," a rep for Tribune Publishing told TheWrap Sunday. Tribune promptly secured the environment and created "workarounds to ensure we could print our newspapers," the spokesperson continued, adding that there was "no evidence that customer credit card information or personally identifiable information has been compromised." The company has brought in "external expert resources" to contain the malware and "remediate any lingering issues." Websites and mobile applications however, have not been impacted. Source
