Parliament hit by cyber-attack

Post  Lamplighter on Sat Jun 24, 2017 7:21 pm

The UK Parliament has been hit by a cyber-security attack.

MPs were reportedly informed about the hack on Friday night and later told of difficulties in accessing their emails away from the Westminster estate.

A parliamentary spokeswoman said the lack of email access was not a result of the cyber-attack but part of the steps being taken to manage the issue.

She said they were investigating the incident and liaising with the National Cyber Security Centre.

The spokeswoman said "unauthorised attempts to access accounts of parliamentary networks users" were discovered.

She added: "Parliament has robust measures in place to protect all of our accounts and systems, and we are taking the necessary steps to protect and secure our network.

"As a precaution we have temporarily restricted remote access to the network."

Hope the hackers release all those MPs' emails to their bits on the site, on expenses. Pcorneater

New #ransomware spreading through SMB... Its #rebooting OS and encrypting files. Any idea which one it is?
