China blamed for BoM hack

China is being blamed for a major cyber attack on the computers at the Bureau of Meteorology, which has compromised sensitive systems across the Federal Government.

Multiple official sources have confirmed the recent attack […] will cost millions of dollars to plug the security breach, as other agencies have also been affected.

I’ve got a good idea. Let’s capture everyone’s internet activity and store it in a central repository that the government controls. It’ll be safe there.
