Cyberattacks on Polish and Slovak parliaments reported.
According to AFP (via Barron's) the parliaments of both Poland and Slovakia sustained cyberattacks yesterday that knocked out various parliamentary networks, including those supporting both voting and telecommunications. From descriptions of the attacks, the incidents appeared to be distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. "We have identified a cyber security incident... There is a signal coming from some point which jams our systems, computers, we cannot even serve the lawmakers in our cafeteria," Reuters quotes Bruno Kollar, speaker of the Slovak parliament, as saying. Polish sources said that some of the attack traffic originated from Russia, and it's widely suspected that the attacks were a Russian operation retaliating for Polish and Slovak support for Ukraine in the present war.
