European Parliament hit by Cyber Attack

The IT chaps at the EP must have been feeling left out. All last week the Commission and the EEAS were under attack, and now it seems it is the Parliament's turn. According to an internal notice the attack on the Parliament
we detected many attempts during the weekend which were successfully repulsed. We are working relentlessly and progressing with the identification of the sources of the attack to allow us to provide a strategic response.
It appears that various systems have been hit,
External access to webmail, EPNet, Terminal Server and Mobile Office will remain closed until at least Tuesday 29 March inclusive.
