There's a cyber war going on for some time now, not one attack a lot more than one against business as has been reported.

Major Nicholas Chantler, a former army counter-intelligence officer and now cyber security lecturer, heard of the attack.

"I would have to say that it shook a lot of cages, because we'd already been aware of these sorts of situations, albeit at a much lower level," he told the ABC.
