    EU officials: We were hacked during conference on Internet security in Azerbaijan

    LONDON - A European official says her staff members were hacked when they joined her for a conference on Internet security in Azerbaijan.

    European Commission Vice-President Neelie Kroes said in a blog post Saturday that her advisers' computers were compromised as they attended a meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in the Azeri capital of Baku.

    Her spokesman Ryan Heath told The Associated Press that the attack occurred while they were in their hotel. He declined to say who might be responsible, adding that the computers would be analyzed for clues.

    It wasn't immediately clear whether the attack resulted in theft of any information.

    Kroes criticized her hosts during the forum Wednesday, attacking the Azeri government for allegedly spying on activists online and "violating the privacy of journalists and their sources."
