The Washington Post said Wednesday that hackers had accessed its servers, including employee user names and passwords, but added that there’s no evidence that the hackers took subscriber information like credit card numbers.

An article on the Washington Post website said the private cyber security firm Mandiant told the paper about the incursion Wednesday. It’s still unclear what, if any, data was taken.

The Post reported earlier this year that it was the victim of a 2011 incursion that was linked to hackers in China who allegedly targeted American media organizations. The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal both reported being hacked at the same time.
