German politicians hacked

Hackers publish personal data from hundreds of German politicians.
Germany’s far-left Linke party confirmed that it had been impacted by a massive hack targeting hundreds of German politicians.

Public broadcaster ARD TV, which first reported the story, said personal data including credit card details and mobile phone numbers had been published on a Twitter account in late December.

The hack appeared to target all of Germany’s political parties currently represented in the federal parliament, except for the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD).

In a statement to Euronews, AfD said that as far as it can tell, its members have not been exposed by the hack and rejected any responsibility.

“Are you kidding?” was their exact response.
