2:03 pm
highly sensitive at the moment there is no known suspect number two that action starts not to see for ourselves where evidentially transparent and that the mercy of such a tax debt is intolerable is calm on. the far side it's not the first time that german politicians have been hacked russia was accused of a series of cyber attacks that stole data from computers in the chairman parliament in twenty fifteen and last year the german government's network came under a fresh attack russian hackers were allegedly also to play. our political correspondent maximiliano kosik is following the latest updates for us max personal data here as we've heard has been leaked cell phone numbers credit card details the government spokesman has said that no highly sensitive data has been leaked what i mean by that well there's always different categories in which
2:04 pm
you can consider data leaks or hack attacks like the suspected one that we're currently talking about the attack or the leak that recurring you talking about is one that contains a lot of like a mass of data and in that is a mixture of a lot of personal data but experts have already confirmed that some of the information has been publicly available for example has been drawn from public websites such as the german parliament's website some of the information that has been supposedly leaked has come from all the leaks for example from two thousand and twelve facebook hack attack where personal data has already been leaked and some has been falsified so experts are currently looking into it and it's important to note that the original leak twitter account has already been shut down but of course there still circulation of the links that have been distributed on the internet max this is a serious breach we saw in our report also the chance are being affected what are
2:05 pm
authorities doing to deal with this. well currently we know that the federal agency for information security is meeting with intelligence services the german government has also been informed and they're now launching an investigation we have it in good authority that the american services are helping on that and of course is important to note very crucial for internet users out there the links are still circulating and it's advice that you should not open them because even though it's quite tempting there seems to be information also on celebrities german celebrities but also potentially well known figures such as german chancellor angela merkel that you do not open these links because they could contain malicious software max this is not the first tack on german politicians on german government networks in recent years a russian group were suspected behind the attacks is there any indication who was behind this data leak. no there isn't there has been a quick sort of remarkable note that it was looking like the far right party if he
2:06 pm
has not been affected from the league but now politicians of the party have come forward and said that they have been. affected too however this what it seems like this is an attack or a leak that is aimed to sort of look at like psychological warfare so personal data everybody can be affected even the most powerful people in germany and so what is different to previous leaks is that those were for example attacking critical infrastructures public services or the german parliamentary technical infrastructure and those kind of attacks the ones that have been have been previously were always attacks that were looking like foreign espionage this one seems to be more of something that is like aimed at showing how easily everybody can be targeted and how everybody in germany and everywhere in the world should be taken care of their personal cyber security original political correspondent max me and of course you're covering the story for us thank you very much. not to some

organizations these n.g.o.s. they do a great job but it should be the job of the governments of europe mr going to i do have to ask you not just italy but also france other european countries have been critical of these n.g.o.s run rescue boats in the mediterranean think that they encourage people smugglers to put migrants in harm's way by putting them on the boats what do you think about prospective. well you know. i'm i'm i'm just a dry land and a lot of these people who are stranded to. the refugees and i think it's a great sort of misery going across the street across the street in the wintertime and i think there has to be a solution now for these kids and it's it's no longer a bridge say like pick up into the last century that's the first thing and you can
2:14 pm
to decide there has to be a solution i'm sure it's going to be one way. but it doesn't help the situation right now and i don't think very encouraged in going across the street because that's what they want to do anyway all right i had going to a member of the german on the right now on board of the sea was three rescue boat off the coast of america thank you so much for joining us here in the company. ok shifting gears to some football transfer news the french league's monaco have signed brazilian defender naldo from the bundesliga club shaka for a two million euro fee at the center back started every single bonus the game for shock the last season and even scored seven goals but has had limited game time this year and on all those spent fourteen years playing in germany wrecking a three hundred fifty one to sing expect sharon says monaco hopes the thirty six
