Breaking on BBC at the moment, apparently MP's were informed late last night. Very minimal information on BBC at the minute but in my opinion likely suspects will be North Korea, or possibly an evolution of the 'wannacry' attack?
THe BBC article only mentions emails at this stage, but if emails have been compromised theres bound to be some sensetive information potentially being grabbed.
Can't wait to see what gets released. Likely blamed on NoKo or Russia.

Its also quite disturbing to many that her reasons for wanting more control is to stop islamophobia.
Not paedophiles, terrorists or criminals...just Islamophobia! Her actions are highly questionable.

Edit to add: To be clear, the current story (June 2017) allegedly relates to a more recent hacking, and the May story relates to one from that point in time. My bafflement is over the fact that only one newspaper covered the "hacking" story in May, when it had great relevance because of the forthcoming election, but now that the election is over and it has apparently happened again, the media have gone full-coverage on it.
