Attack labelled as “Massive”.
Reports by Bureau of Meteorology have confirmed that the BOM supercomputer network has been hacked and the offender has been identified as China with motivation cited as commercial, strategic or both.
The systems straddle the nation and have links into defence networks. Compromising this service could impede the operation of commercial and military aircraft that rely on forecast services.
The damage seems to be extensive and is expected to take years and millions on dollars to fix.
