OSLO (AFP) – Norway’s parliament said on Tuesday (Sept 1) it had been the target of a “vast” cyber attack that enabled hackers to access the emails of some lawmakers.
The hackers’ identities were not immediately known.
“The parliament has recently been targetted in a vast cyber attack,” the institution wrote in a statement.
“There have been intrusions in the email accounts of a few MPs and employees. Our analyses show that varying quantities of data have been downloaded,” it said, providing no further details.
