The Greens have been attacked by hackers several times in recent weeks. As a result, access to the “Green Network”, an internal platform of the party, has only been available to a limited extent since June 13, said a spokeswoman for the German Press Agency and confirmed a corresponding report by “Spiegel”.

There had already been an attack on the party’s IT system on May 30, after which the party filed a complaint. According to “Spiegel”, leading Green politicians were also affected by this attack.

“Everything indicates that both events originate from the same attacker. We immediately informed all the necessary security authorities and the state data protection officer,” said the spokeswoman.
