Chinese hackers were in control of IJN's computers for most of 2011, it emerged today. This may account for the large amount of pro-panda propaganda published on the website during that year.
Obviously we are surprised and distressed that Chinese hackers were able to break through our rigorous security measures, said IJN Editor Mr Horse McRacing, by working out that our password was *password*.
But IT expert Burring O'Lefart said that it was a disaster waiting to happen. If they had taken my advice, they would have unplugged all their computers two years ago and buried them in a pit. If they'd done that we wouldn't be having this problem now.
The discovery leaves IJN with a dilemma, McRacing explained: Now we're back in control, we're not sure whether to publish a load of anti-panda publicity to counteract the effects of the hacking or to leave well alone and hope for the best.
