European Commission Officials Hacked At Internet Governance Forum

European Commission Officials Hacked At Internet Governance Forum: "A European official says her staff members were hacked when they joined her for a conference on Internet security in Azerbaijan. European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes said in a blog post Saturday that her advisers' computers were compromised as they attended a meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in Baku, the Azeri capital. Her spokesman, Ryan Heath, said the attack occurred while they were in their hotel. Heath said he and a colleague got messages from Apple Inc. warning them that their computers had been accessed by an unauthorized party, something he said he believed was an attempt to spy on him. "I'm presuming it was some kind of surveillance," he said in a telephone interview. "What we're going to do is to get the computers forensically analyzed to see what if anything was taken out of them.""
