This morning a cyber attack was aimed at Australia’s Federal parliament. The emails, contact lists and documents of  back-benchers and opposition members who regularly log into the IT system were potentially breached. The government remains vigilant, whilst it leaves cyber security experts scrambling.

The Australian Cyber Security Centre said it is too early to know who is behind the attack.
