+ - E-Crime Police Raid Melbourne Newspaper->

Submitted by beaverdownunder
beaverdownunder (1822050) writes "Police from the 'E-Crime Squad' have raided The Age’s offices in Melbourne (Australia) today, executing a warrant in relation to an investigation following allegations of illegal access to the ALP (Australian Labor Party) database.

‘‘Victoria Police E-Crime Squad is investigating the allegation personal details of Victorians were electronically accessed by a media outlet via a confidential political party database without authorisation,’’ a police spokeswoman said.

Last November, The Age revealed the Labor Party held the personal details of thousands of Victorians — including sensitive health and financial information — in a database that was accessed by campaign workers before the Victoria state election."
