Hackers close to the Kremlin claim cyber attack on the EU Parliament

According to the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, a hacker group close to the Kremlin has claimed responsibility for a cyber attack on the European Parliament's website. "Our IT experts are fighting back and protecting our systems," she wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

Due to numerous hits, the Parliament's website can only be used to a limited extent on Wednesday, as press officer Jaume Duch had previously announced.

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

The accesses are related to a so-called DDos attack, Duch continued. We are working to fix the problems that have arisen as a result as soon as possible. In DDoS attacks, attackers overwhelm their victims' servers with a flood of data requests in order to paralyze them.
