Data Leak of Several German Leaders Including Angela Merkel

Berlin


Hundreds of German leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, steal personal data and have been released online. This information was given by the government on Friday. The information includes copies of home address, mobile phone number, letter, bill, and identity card which were published on Twitter in December but it came to light this week. It was not immediately clear that hackers targeted the leaders or they leaked internally.




Government spokesman Martina Fitz told reporters, "Private data and documents of hundreds of leaders and celebrities were published on the Internet." He confirmed that Merkel's data is also leaked. He said, 'Government is taking this incident very seriously.' He said that the affected people include members of the Lower House of Parliament and members of the European Parliament, as well as leaders of regional and local assemblies.


Fitz said that in the initial investigation, it is revealed that sensitive information or data leak has not been done from Merkel's office. At present, the political parties in Berlin have expressed serious concern over this.
