The railway board of China’s largest railway operator, Bluebell, has confirmed that a network of tunnels connecting Shanghai to Wuhan has been breached by hackers.
The attack, which took place over the weekend, has been reported to the authorities.
China Railway Construction said the attacks were caused by “a local cybercrime gang”.
In a statement on its website, the company said it has identified the hackers responsible and “the perpetrators are still at large”.
China Railway, which is China’s second-largest railway operator after China National Railway, said the attack is not believed to be related to the country’s cyberattacks on the United States and South Korea in March.
A spokesperson told Business Insider that the attack could have occurred as early as May and that it would be investigating the incident.
