The Minister for the GCSB warns New Zealand may have been the target of cyber attacks at the height of covid-19 - and working from home left us more vulnerable. 

It follows a five-fold increase in cyber attacks reported by the World Health Organisation in April, and a massive attack on the Australian Government in June. 

Producer Katie Doyle spoke to the GCSB and New Zealand Security Intelligence Service Minister Andrew Little to find out if New Zealand is at risk of a similar attack.
