DDoS attack: Hackers close to the Kremlin claim cyberattack on the EU Parliament

meAccording to the president of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, a group of hackers close to the Kremlin has claimed responsibility for a cyberattack on the website of the European Parliament. “Our IT experts are fighting back and protecting our systems,” she wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

Due to the many visits, Parliament’s website can only be used to a limited extent on Wednesday, just like the Press officer Jaume Duch previously communicated.

A few hours earlier, the European Parliament passed a resolution condemning Russia as a supporter of terrorism. It was initially unclear if the attack was related to the resolution. However, there are repeated attacks by Russian hacker groups on the authorities of Western countries.

The accesses are related to a so-called DDos attack, Duch continued. We are working to fix any issues that have arisen as a result as soon as possible. In DDoS attacks, attackers overwhelm their victims’ servers with an avalanche of data requests to paralyze them.
