Swiss spy agency acknowledges huge data leak

The Swiss intelligence agency NDB has acknowledged a huge data theft from its counter-terrorism database, the Reuters agency reported on Tuesday.

The stolen data included classified materials the NDB shared with the secret services of friendly states, including the British MI6 and the American CIA.

Switzerland warned them that their data might be put in jeopardy. Suspicion fell on a senior employee of the NDB IT-department with an eight-year service record.
