Suspected Chinese hackers might hacked in Australian govt officials system which includes PM and MPs

With the tip-off from the US Intelligence agency, Australian government came to know about the security breach. The alleged hacker had targeted the system of Autralian Prime Minister Julia Gillard's parliamentary computer and those of at least two senior ministers which includes Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd and Defence Minister Stephen Smith are suspected of being hacked, according to a newspaper report.

It is reported that several thousand emails may have been accessed from the computers of at least 10 ministers.

The Australian authorities have refused to confirm or deny on the reports.

Reports suggest the hackers may have been trying to access information on Australia's lucrative mining industry.

Sydney's Daily Telegraph quoted four unnamed government sources as saying Chinese intelligence agencies were among a number of suspected hackers.
