Foreign ministries hacked

Hackers penetrated Brazil’s foreign ministry internal email system but failed to get access to confidential government documents and cables, a ministry spokesman said. Email communication was shut down for a day and diplomats at Brazilian Embassies abroad were told to change their passwords.

The attack follows the infiltration of Belgian Foreign Ministry servers where hackers stole data related to the Ukraine crisis. The security breech prompted a crackdown which left diplomats without Internet or email services for two weeks.
