Australia accuses foreign government of cyber attack on lawmakers

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) A cyber attack on Australian lawmakers that breached the networks of major political parties was probably carried out by a foreign government, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Monday (February 18), but did not name any suspects.

As Australia heads for an election due by May, lawmakers were told this month to urgently change their passwords after the cyber intelligence agency detected an attack on the national parliament's computer network.

The hackers breached the networks of major political parties, Morrison said, as he issued an initial assessment by investigators.

Morrison did not reveal what information was accessed but he said there was no evidence of electoral interference.
