Australian Parliament resets computer passwords

Canberra: Australia’s parliament had to reset all the passwords on its computer network after an unknown attacker tried to hack into the system, an official statement said on Friday. In the statement, the legislature’s presiding officers said “a number of measures” had been taken to protect the network following a “security incident on the parliamentary computing network”, reports CNN. “There is no evidence that any data has been accessed or taken at this time, however this will remain subject to ongoing investigation,” it said. The officers said they had no evidence as yet that the hack was an attempt to influence or disrupt parliament. (IANS)
