Submission + - Australian PM's email allegedly hacked by China (

c0lo writes: THE parliamentary computers of at least 10 federal ministers including the Prime Minister, Foreign Minister and Defence Minister are suspected of being hacked into in a major breach of national security.

It is believed that several thousand emails may have been accessed. Senior sources in the Government have confirmed to "The Daily Telegraph" that the espionage occurred over more than a month, beginning in February.

An investigation is now believed to be under way by ASIO after Australian intelligence agencies were tipped off to the cyber-spy raid by US intelligence officials within the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
