Chinese are still hacking The Wall Street Journal: Rupert Murdoch

Wall Street Journal proprietor Rupert Murdoch says that Chinese hackers are still attacking his newspaper, suggesting the spying campaign against U.S. journalists unveiled last week is still live.

In a brief message posted to Twitter, Murdoch said late Tuesday that "Chinese still hacking us, or were over weekend."

The Journal is one of a series of news organizations that have revealed that they were hit by what have been described as China-based hackers.

The New York Times and The Washington Post have also reported that their computer systems were breached in similar incidents, while Bloomberg News said it managed to deflect a hacking attempt.

Messages seeking further comment from Dow Jones, the Journal's publisher, were not immediately returned on Wednesday.
