Nine confirmed Channel 9 broadcast disrupted by cyber attack.

Nine has confirmed that a cyber security breach was the source of Channel 9's broadcasting shut down on Sunday, 28 March.

While the motive for the attack still remains unclear, the company has referred the matter to the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD).

Director for people and culture at Nine, Vanessa Morley, noted that the company is working to identify the outstanding issues.

"We wish to inform you there has been a cyber-attack on our systems which has disrupted live broadcasts out of Nine Sydney (1 Denison). Our IT teams are working around the clock to fully restore our systems, which have primarily affected our Broadcast and Corporate business units,” Morley outlined.

While Channel 9's regular broadcast is currently operational, the Weekend Today program this morning was disrupted.

More to come.
