    Hackers target Guardian jobs site

    Computer hackers have targeted the Guardian newspaper's jobs website in a "sophisticated and deliberate" move, the company has said.

    The breach put the personal details of some of the site's users at risk, and those who may have been affected have been identified and e-mailed.

    The Guardian said it had since been "assured" by the supplier that runs the site that the system was now secure.

    Officers from the Metropolitan Police's e-crime unit are investigating.

    The Guardian says its jobs site attracts more than two million unique users a month.

    The company e-mailed those affected, saying: "You have used the site to make one or more job applications and we believe your personal data, relating to those applications, may have been accessed."
