EU officials hacked during conference visit
EU officials were hacked during a conference in Azerbaijan, said European Commission vice-president Neelie Kroes in a blog post. According to Kroes' spokesperson Ryan Heath, the attack took place while they were at their hotel, and were subsequently warned by Apple after the technology giant said an "unauthorized party" might have accessed their computers.
It's not clear who may have been behind the attack, but Heath "[presumed] it was some kind of surveillance," to see what the officials were up to. Kroes was speaking at a conference in Baku, the country's capital, where she was particularly critical of her guests, after claiming the government "[violates] the privacy of journalists and their sources."
"So much for openness," she wrote.
