Authorities in Australia say they are investigating an attempt to hack into its parliament's computer network.

Lawmakers said there was "no evidence" that information had been accessed or stolen, but politicians' passwords have been reset as a precaution.


Local cyber-security experts have suggested the hack likely came from a foreign state.

Australian PM Scott Morrison said he didn't intend to comment in depth on "the source or nature of this".


He said there was "no suggestion" that government agencies or departments had been targeted. MPs and their staff use the parliament network to store emails, among other data.
