Cyberattack hobbles printing, delivery of major US newspapers

A cyberattack caused major printing and delivery disruptions Dec. 29 at large U.S. newspapers such as the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune and The Baltimore Sun.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the attack, which infected systems crucial to the news production and printing process, appeared to be in the form of "Ryuk" ransomware and to have originated outside the U.S.

Tribune Publishing Co., which owns the Tribune and the Sun, said "there is no evidence that customer credit card information or personally identifiable information has been compromised."

The attack also affected the West Coast editions of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal — both printed at the Los Angeles Times facilities and caused widespread issues in South Florida, one of Tribune Publishing's major markets, the Los Angeles Times said.
