Australia accuses foreign government of cyber-attack

Australia’s cyber intelligence agency detected an attack on the national parliament’s computer network and believes that a sophisticated state actor is responsible, Prime Minister Scott Morrison stated. Networks of main political parties have also been affected. Morrison did not name any suspects or reveal what information was accessed, but did state that there was no evidence of election interference. Cybersecurity researchers consider China, Russia, and Iran the most likely culprits. China has denied the allegations since.
