Lenovo Suffers Cyber Attack On Its Home Page

Chinese computer maker Lenovo Group Ltd. said Thursday that its main website had been hacked, according to reports citing a company spokesman. "Unfortunately, Lenovo has been the victim of a cyber attack. One effect of this attack was to redirect traffic from the Lenovo website. We are also actively investigating other aspects" of the incident, the spokesman said, according to the Financial Times. Lenovo said it had since restored functionality to its site and was reviewing its cyber security. A Wall Street Journal report cited other accounts as saying the web address for the Lenovo site was redirecting users to "a slideshow of kids looking into a webcam" on Wednesday afternoon U.S. time. Shares of Lenovo were up 0.3% in late-morning Hong Kong trading Thursday, outperforming a 0.1% gain for the Hang Seng Index .
