Chinese hackers target Alaska

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) Most of the attempts came from a University.

    The Juneau Empire reported that Chinese hackers scanned Alaska computers at Alaska Communications, the state Department of Natural Resources, Alaska Power and Telephone, TelAlaska and the governor's office.

    This was in response to the Governor's trade mission that visited China in March.  The cybersecurity firm Recorded Future disclosed that the hackers were based at Tsinghua University in China.  The report went on to state that more than 1 million connections to networks in Alaska were made by IP addresses associated with the university.
