Washington: Things did not fare well for US newspapers over the last weekend of the year as a suspected malware attack affected their publication. According to Mashable, initially what was thought to be a server outage, turned out to be an attack that delayed distribution of Saturday’s Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune newspapers.

The company suspected it to be an attack through a computer virus originating from outside of the US with an alleged intention of disabling infrastructure and not specifically to steal information.
