Company officials at the Washington Post have revealed to the public that its servers have been hacked, with reports of employee usernames and passwords being stolen. The Washington Post believes that the hack originated within China, since the attack began on a server used by foreign staff at the newspaper company. Though the extent of the attack is not yet clear, the company is recommending that all employees change both their usernames and password as soon as possible. Personal subscriber information is not believed to be stolen, since neither it nor the publishing system for the Washington Post was accessed as far as the company is aware.
