IAEA Looks into Iran Hack
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials are looking into reports that the organization's computers and cellular phones may have been hacked by Iranian officials seeking sensitive information. The hack allegedly occurred while the equipment was unsupervised as the IAEA visited Iranian uranium enrichment plants in early 2011.
Several similar incidents are thought to have taken place, “ranging from those where it is certain something has happened to suppositions,” according to an official quoted by the Associated Press.
