Data Stolen in Hack Attack on German Parliament

Germany has confirmed data was stolen recently in a cyberattack on the federal parliament. It’s unclear who was behind the hacking.
 
A spokeswoman for Germany's lower house of parliament, the Bundestag, confirmed that hackers had managed to steal data during the cyber attack two weeks ago. She described the detection of several data leaks.

Very recently hackers managed to gain access to the Bundestag's internal server, launching an unprecedented attack reportedly by using so-called Trojan viruses. Days prior, news magazine "Spiegel" had reported that government IT experts had noticed previous attempts to hack into servers.

The magazine also said there was evidence of a foreign spy agency being behind the hacking attack, although it could not cite sources. Experts have since discovered more computers that have also been infected.
