Parliament’s email accounts were also hacked in a recent cyberattack – The First News
The Polish Internal Security Agency has determined that the hacking campaign dubbed “Ghostwriter” also penetrated MPs’ email accounts, a spokesman for Poland’s security chief said on Friday.
According to Stanisław Żaryn, a detailed analysis conducted by the Internal Security Agency (ABW) had uncovered unauthorized connections to the official email accounts of some members of the Polish Sejm, the lower house of parliament.
The spokesperson said the ABW had “immediately submitted appropriate recommendations to the Chancellery of the Sejm”.
“Members whose mailboxes were attacked were informed of the threats and recommendations were made to minimize the effects of the attack. They also received cybersecurity training,” he added.
Żaryn went on to say that the hacking of MPs’ email accounts was “part of a disinformation campaign against Poland”.
Earlier this month, Polish media reported that emails sent by some government officials from their private email accounts, including those of the Prime Minister’s top aide, had been hacked and made available on the Telegram social media platform.
