National leader Simon Bridges held a press conference on Wednesday after Treasury admitted there had been multiple attempts to hack its systems.

On Tuesday, Bridges revealed details of the Wellbeing Budget - two days before the official announcement.

"Yesterday afternoon, we discovered multiple and persistent attempts to gain unauthorised access to Budget information," Treasury chief executive Gabriel Makhlouf told The AM Show.
