MPs have been targeted by a new phishing campaign after a government whip’s accounts were hacked, according to reports.
Tory MP Mike Freer told BuzzFeed News that the “parliamentary authorities are currently investigating” following the incident.
According to the report, dozens of MPs were added to a WhatsApp group named “Hack warning 1” by an account linked to Freer’s personal mobile phone number.
The MPs left the group swiftly, followed by Freer’s number.
