E-mail for Quebec corruption inquiry reportedly hacked
The tipster e-mail link for the Quebec government's anti-corruption inquiry has been shut down after it was reportedly hacked.
Seven e-mails – one of which claimed the bribing of a Montreal city employee by a construction company – were allegedly given to the QuebecLeaks website by hackers who said they were testing the site for security flaws.
Other e-mails, described by the website, supposedly discussed illicit cash transfers and a debit card that was offered to an official. All the people mentioned in the e-mails were reportedly able to be identified. The commission was told Monday that its e-mails had been given to other people. A spokesman for the anti-corruption commission headed by Justice France Charbonneau said Wednesday that security is being reviewed and tightened.
