ANU hackers were possibly sponsored by the Chinese government: Report

Unidentified hackers who gained access to internal servers of Australian National University and stole personal data belonging to staff, visitors, and students dating back 19 years were possibly sponsored by the Chinese government, The Sydney Morning Herald has learned.
Earlier this week, the Australian National University announced that unidentified hackers gained access to internal systems that stored vast amounts of personal data belonging to staff, visitors, and students.
Data compromised by the breach included names, addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, emergency contact details, tax file numbers, payroll information, bank account details, student academic records, and student academic transcripts dating back nineteen years.
Fortunately, internal systems that stored other details such as credit cards, travel arrangements, police history checks, workers' compensation, some performance development records, and medical records were not targeted by hackers.
