Cyber-attack on parliament leaves MPs unable to access emails

Post by Mary_FV on Sat Jun 24, 2017 5:37 pm

Parliament has been hit by a “sustained and determined” cyber-attack by hackers attempting to gain access to MPs’ and their staffers’ email accounts.

Both houses of parliament were targeted on Friday in an attack that sought to gain access to accounts protected by weak passwords. MPs said they were unable to access their emails after the attack began.
