Washington Post Job Site Hacked

The Washington Post has disclosed that their job site was hacked during 27th and 28th of June and that only limited data, including some email addresses and user IDs were harvested. No user passwords or other personal information was accessed.

The Washington Post is now working with law enforcement agencies to try to find those responsible.

The vulnerability (undisclosed) has since been identified and closed down.

Users of the Washington Post job site should be careful of unsolicited email (SPAM), particularly that which might purport to be from the job site, which might try to target users in phishing scams to get more details from the user.

    Sounds like somebody is trying to do a cover up there. Just saying!
