Foreign Spies Hacked Australian Bureau of Meteorology

The federal government released a report saying that foreign powers hacked the Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s network and installed malicious software to steal sensitive documents.


The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) came to a conclusion that a recent series of brazen attacks on high-profile targets indicated a willingness to use disruptive and destructive measures to impede organizations and governments. It also turned out that security controls implemented to counteract hacking were insufficient and failed to protect the Bureau of Meteorology.

In the meantime, the Minister for Cybersecurity refused to reveal which countries allegedly were behind the hacks, but claimed that the threat was both real and increasing. Apparently, the security experts decided not to narrow it down to specific countries, but indicated that cyberespionage was alive and well. They admitted they had to make sure that they were taking all the steps necessary to keep the organizations and government safe, taking cybersecurity very seriously.

It was previously reported that China was believed to be behind the attack on the Bureau of Meteorology. The Bureau supplies critical information to a number of government departments, including Defense.

According to statistics, Australian Signals Directorate detected nearly 1,100 cybersecurity attacks that could warrant operational responses over the last 18 months. At the same time, the 2016 Threat Report warned that the figure in question is likely to increase, and that terrorists may succeed in accessing and compromising government computer networks within 3 years.

No avatarWell technically nowadays you get those weather reports from satellites so... Maybe not so ridiculous ?
Afterall weather satellites don't only watch the clouds.

sharris16 avatarBeing an Australian i would see it as a ploy (excuse) for our government to move a little closer to blocking more and more traffic. Hack away.

No avatarAnd they would still get the weather report wrong.

TheAntiNormalist avatarFor those that don't know. The hack is actually a rather large security leak when you consider that using the full radar maps around Australia you can effectively find and target most Australian military targets of importance as the radar and military are actually linked. The thing this article doesn't touch on is the close nature of the relationship between the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and the Australian Military, specifically the Navy.

No avatarMeteorology... Not a subject you'd think someone would have reason to hack... Trolls will be trolls though.
