European Parliament’s network has been hacked

The news comes not long after leaked documents showed the NSA was bugging and spying EU offices around the world. But the U.S. agency can likely be ruled out as a suspect in this latest hack, following reports from German media.

The European Parliament has shut down its public Wi-Fi network in Strasbourg after a hacker was found to have “captured the communication” between smartphones and tablets. In a public posting to the European Parliament’s internal IT email lists, the warning came after a man-in-the-middle attack was discovered that led to some staff mailboxes being compromised.
