"Mass hack" attacks German politicians

  • Personal details of several German politicians, including Chancellor Angela Merkel were hacked. Contacts, private chats and credit card details were uploaded on Twitter. Information of some celebrities and journalists were also leaked. The true extent of the damage is unknown, but Justice Minister Katarina Barley claims it to be a 'serious attack' and that the people behind this want to damage the confidence of people in Germany's democracy and institutions. The documents were posted in December last year, but officials learned about it on Thursday.
