Greens MP fears phone was hacked in WikiLeaks exchange


Andrew Crook, Crikey.co.au, 24 january 2004

West Australian Greens Senator Scott Ludlam says his iPhone may have been hacked by the federal government so it could keep tabs on an internet activist.

Ludlam told Crikey from New Zealand this morning that his iPhone had been exhibiting strange behaviour consistent with external interception when he escorted former WikiLeaks spokesman Jacob Appelbaum from Ballarat to Melbourne last Friday.
