Hackers target young women's centres

Published fredag 12 april 2013 kl 11.05

Hackers have attacked helplines for young women and they have also used viruses to spy on the groups' computers, reports Swedish Radio P3 News.

The Swedish "tjejjour" call themselves "young women's empowerment centers" in English. There are around 60 in Sweden. These non-profit groups offer confidential help and advice for young women.

The head of the centres, My Vingren, says that they have found "trojan" viruses placed on their computers, which were capable of spying on everything that the volunteers did on the centres' computers, plus altering data and deleting documents.

My Vingren says that the empowerment centres are currently the target of threats.
