Cyberattack strikes media-monitoring company used by Australian government


A media-monitoring and analytics firm used by the federal government has been hit by a cyberattack, prompting the involvement of the nation's leading cybersecurity agency.

Isentia, which boasts it has "most government departments and large corporations" as clients in Australia, told the Australian Stock Exchange on Tuesday it is "urgently investigating a cybersecurity incident" that was "disrupting services" involving its media portal – a service customers use to see media reporting on them, or issues of interest to them, and find journalists.
