Apparently no one is safe from cyberattacks. The latest victim is someone who I would think hackers wouldn't pay the slightest attention to.

According to Team Sky, a British cycling team, files containing health and training information about champion Chris Froome have been broken into. Since the breach, there has been intense speculation that these files were stolen to prove Froome has been doping to win races - more specifically the 2013 Tour de France race which he won.

"We think someone has hacked into training data and got Chris's files," said Team Sky boss Sir Dave Brailsford to BBC.

He continued to explain the irony of the situation.

"We've got some legal guys on the case. I would never mention a name but ethically and morally if you are going to accuse someone of doping, then don't cheat," Brailsford said.
