Al Jazeera Media Network said it suffered a massive cyberattack targeting its systems, websites and social media platforms, the company announced on Twitter on Thursday (8 June). The Doha-based Pan-Arab satellite media network said it was combating “systematic and continual” hacking attempts on its websites and digital platforms.
“These attempts are gaining intensity and taking various forms,” Al Jazeera said on its website. “However, the platforms have not been compromised.” Its English- and Arabic-language channels, websites and social media feeds were still operational at the time of publication.
