Hackers from China made a cyber-attack on the systems of the New York City Transportation Authority

According to NYT, the attackers failed to gain access to the systems responsible for the movement of metro cars.

The computer systems of the New York City Transportation Authority were subjected to a cyberattack in April; it was committed by hackers who may be associated with the Chinese authorities. This was reported by The New York Times on Wednesday, citing a management document.

According to her, the attackers were unable to gain access to the systems responsible for the movement of metro cars, so the safety of passengers was not threatened. It is indicated that hackers also did not gain access to the personal information of passengers. In total, according to the department’s calculations, hackers were able to break into three of the 18 computer control systems.

According to the newspaper, the document notes that the damage from the cyber incident was insignificant. The US Department of Homeland Security, which is investigating the incident, declined to comment on the publication of this information.
