Murdoch tweets 'Chinese hackers still targeting WSJ'

London, Feb 7 (ANI): Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch has waded into the row over cyber-attacks from China, by tweeting that hackers are still targeting the American newspaper.

The Wall Street Journal, owned by Murdoch's News Corporation, was one of several media organisations to disclose that it had been targeted by Chinese hackers.

The WSJ had previously reported that hacking groups had entered its network via computers in its Beijing office, the BBC reports.

It said they then infiltrated its global computer system, targeting journalists in its Beijing bureau among others.

The paper said that security specialists had erased several of the company's hard drives in its Chinese bureau last year after the discovery, and that it had completed other efforts to overhaul its systems at the end of January.

China's foreign ministry has denied any government involvement. (ANI)
