A hacker group claims to have cracked the database of Switzerland’s largest political party, the conservative Swiss People’s Party (SVP) and stolen the personal data of over 50,000 people, including the names and email addresses of SVP supporters.
Contacting the website by letter, the hackers calling themselves NSHC, said they wanted to raise awareness about Switzerland’s lack of protection against cyber attacks, tech website inside-it.ch. reported.
The right-wing SVP confirmed to 20 Minuten daily that it had been a victim of a cyber attack but could not confirm whether any data had been stolen.
