Emergency changes made to MPs’ IT system after ‘cyber security’ alert

Emergency changes were being made to MPs’ IT system yesterday after a “cyber security incident”. A high-importance email was sent out by Parliamentary officials warning MPs to remain extra vigilant and look out for suspicious emails or activity . The email, sent just after lunchtime, said: “We are currently investigating a cyber security incident.

“We are going to be making some emergency changes to the IT network which may cause some disruption.”

The email was sent hours after reports that British politicians’ passwords had been traded by Russian hackers.

The Times reported that 1,000 Parliamentary workers’ logins were traded

The Times claimed 1,000 MPs and parliamentary staff, 7,000 police employees and more than 1,000 Foreign Office staff were in the troves sold or swapped on Russian-speaking hacking sites. Cabinet ministers including Education Secretary Justine Greening and Business Secretary Greg Clark were said to be among the haul. However, a House of Commons spokesman would not confirm whether or not the probe was related to The Times’ report.

Officials also declined to say how many email accounts were affected, when the incident occurred or what it was. The spokesman said: The Houses of Parliament are currently investigating a cyber security incident.

“Like all responsible organisations we have to respond to constantly evolving threats . We have systems in place to protect member and staff accounts and to prevent unauthorised access to information .

We are working to investigate the incident and will be taking the necessary steps to protect our systems.

Masked bank robbers stopped in their tracks when security guard simply locks the door

A bank1 robbery was foiled by a quick-thinking bank worker, armed only with a door key.

A short YouTube2 video, taken from the bank’s CCTV3 , shows three masked men approach the door of the Banorte Bank in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Before they can get through the inner glass door, a smartly-dressed man coolly puts the key in the lock, preventing the trio from entering. After a moment of confusion, with the three foiled villains looking at each other, the gang make their escape.

The video has been viewed over 340,000 times since being posted on Wednesday. And the bank worker’s actions have been widely praised, with some commenting: “Give that man a raise.”

Foiled, the hapless trio make their escape

The hapless trio of wannabe bank robbers came in for some stick with one posted writing: “Give me your damn mone – Oh, okay.”

Bank robberies have a habit of going wrong.
