A NUCLEAR power plant has been hit by a massive security breach which risks handing sensitive data about radioactive fuel rods to terrorist groups.

Gundremmingen plant in southern Germany was found to be riddled with computer viruses, including those which would allow attackers remote access to equipment for moving nuclear fuel rods.

Viruses, known as W32.Ramnit and Conficker, were discovered at the plant, which is located 75 miles northwest of Munich.
