German politicians have not been spared from the cyber attack on
German politicians were almost wiped out by cyber attacks. Today, there is an “earthquake” on
the German Internet: in addition to the extreme right-wing German New Choice Party
The whole German politicians have been attacked on the Internet. Hundreds of German politicians, including Angela Merkel, the German
Chancellor, have their personal information blown up by hackers and all of them have been publicly posted on Twitter.

financial details and other sensitive information. In addition, there are also some celebrities, journalists lying guns, data was “stolen” by hackers.
At present, the German government has no clue as to who was behind the attack. Horst Seehofer, the interior minister, said the authorities were trying to find the perpetrators.
And in the event of such a major incident, he also dutifully defended the German government’s cyber security, saying there is no evidence that the German parliament or government system has been damaged.
According to available information, the leak originated from a Twitter account in Hamburg. Authorities in the northern German city said they were working with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner to prevent data dissemination among German politicians.
The reason for working with Ireland is that Twitter’s European headquarters is in Dublin, the Irish capital. In theory, the Irish Data Protection Agency is responsible for the leak.
