Chinese-linked hackers targeted New York subway system

A Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) document has revealed that New York’s subway system was targeted by hackers with links to the Chinese government in April, media reports said.

Three of  MTA’s 18 systems were impacted during the incident. However, no  employee information was breached.

"Importantly, the MTA’s existing multi-layered security systems worked as designed, preventing spread of the attack and we continue to strengthen these comprehensive systems and remain vigilant as cyber-attacks are a growing global threat,” Portnoy continued.
