Japan's Parliament network infected with virus Japanese officials have confirmed that computers in the Parliament have been infected with a nasty virus.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura told reporters that a server and three computers used by members of the lower house were infected. Local media reported that the virus was used to hack into the computers to steal log-in info and e-mails.

The reports says the virus spread after members opened email attachments.

Last month, Japanese defense contractors were hit by similar attacks, with the attackers looking to steal classified military data.

There was no indication on where the attacks are coming from.
