13,000 Email Addresses Stolen From Council
Hackers have stolen the email addresses of over 13,000 people in a "malicious cyber attack" on a council website.
Bosses at Edinburgh City Council are contacting everyone affected by the incident to offer advice and support.
But they stress only email addresses were taken and no other personal data, such as bank details, was stolen.
The local authority has also reinforced security on its website.
Hackers took the email addresses of 13,134 people who had contacted the council, with 400 of the authority's email addresses affected.
A spokesman for the City of Edinburgh Council said: "This was a malicious cyber attack on the council's website which is hosted in a UK data centre. It was dealt with swiftly and at no point were any council services affected.
"We are contacting everyone who has been affected to inform them of the incident and offer them advice and support. We have reassured individuals that the only details that have been accessed are their e-mail addresses.
"The Information Commissioner's Office has been informed and preventative measures have been taken by the web service providers.
"We want to reassure the public the ongoing security of our website is critically important, and we continue to work with our service providers to ensure that the risks associated with attacks are dealt with."
Police are appealing for information about the incident.
