LONDON (AP) — WikiLeaks has published a searchable library of the massive email trove stolen from Italian surveillance company Hacking Team, ensuring more exposure for the spyware vendor's secretive clients.

WikiLeaks says it has published more than 1 million searchable messages, adding to the transparency website's already considerable haul of leaked and hacked documents.

Thursday's announcement came as Italian legislators were told that officials are investigating the spectacular breach at the Milan-based company to see whether it has placed Italy's national security at risk, according to one of the lawmakers present.

He spoke on condition of anonymity because the committee isn't supposed to speak publicly about the closed-door session.

Meanwhile Hacking Team spokesman Eric Rabe says the firm has lost none of its clients.
