Chinese hackers ‘breach Australian media organisations’ ahead of G20

A Chinese hacking group believed to be affiliated with the Chinese government has penetrated Australian media organisations ahead of this weekend’s G20 meeting, a global cyber security expert says.

“We started to see activity over the last couple of weeks targeting Australian media organisations and we believe that’s related to the G20,” Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder of US computer security company CrowdStrike, told the ABC’s 7.30 program.

CrowdStrike has named the group “Deep Panda.”
