Mass Data Attack on German Politicians

Hundreds of German politicians have had personal details stolen and published online.

Hundreds of German politicians have had personal details stolen and published online. Sven Herpig, project director of the Transatlantic Cyber Forum at the Berlin-based thinktank Stiftung Neue Verantwortung, tells us how much personal data was leaked after the breach. Also in the programme, three former Credit Suisse bankers have been arrested over their alleged role in a $2bn fraud scheme connected to firms in Mozambique. We get the background from Dr Joseph Hanlon, who teaches at the Open University and edits two newsletters on Mozambique. With a partial government shutdown in the US now entering its third week, we talk to one federal employee about the mood amongst her colleagues. Our reporter examines the arguments around whether business should be doing more to tackle the problem of loneliness. Plus we look back at the rest of the week's big business stories with Nina Trentmann of the Wall Street Journal in London, and Melody Hahn, senior writer at Yahoo Finance in New York.
