ZDNet is reporting that the European Parliament has shut down its public WiFi network after discovering a hacker was intercepting communications between smartphones and tablets. It appears that staff emails have been compromised and that was the first sign of trouble. The network is accessible to the public, media and staff. This network is the only one believed to be compromised, the private networks are still functioning so the shutdown will not interrupt any staff work. Usernames and passwords of at least 14 members of the staff are believed to have been stolen. Hit the link below for the full story from ZDnet.
