Parliamentary phishing scam?

Not particularly sure of the details, but at the conference thingy today I heard that there's been a phishing scam that targetted parliametary email addresses, including former "e-Minister" Alun Michael.

Whilst Alun is apparently quite savvy on these things aqnd so saw the scam for what it was, I do worry how many people may have fallen for it. Apparently the Police investigation will become a case study for the All Party Parliamentary Internet Group. I wonder if the result of the case study will be fed into the ID cards debate given the security considerations etc etc?
