  • Hackers have embarrassed the European Central Bank by breaching one of its websites, installing malware on to the site and stealing the contact details of 481 subscribers to a statistical newsletter.
  • It is the second time in five years that one of the ECB’s websites has been hacked and raises questions about the cyber security measures taken by the central bank.
  • The ECB contacted the 481 subscribers to the Bird newsletter on Thursday but was still investigating whether any of them have suffered such attacks.
