The Ministry of Defence foiled more than 1,000 cyber attacks in the last year from criminals and foreign intelligence services.

The Foreign Secretary William Hague revealed in February that computers belonging to the government have been infected with the “Zeus” computer virus after users opened an e-mail purporting to come from the White House and followed a link.

He said cyberspace was providing “rich pickings” with UK defence contractors also being targeted.
