Not to be left out in the old boys club of the Great Chinese Hacking Scandal of 2013, the Wall Street Journal included themselves with the

New York Times

as being hacked by Chinese operatives. That’s two big name dead tree media organisations getting hacked by China. Who’s next?

The Wall Street Journal said that “infiltration efforts” by the hackers weren’t made to steal customer information but rather to monitor the WSJ’s coverage of China.
