Sec­ond hit on Labour

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

HACK­ERS have at­tacked Bri­tain’s op­po­si­tion Labour Party for a sec­ond day in a row.

The at­tack­ers flooded Labour’s web ser­vices with ma­li­cious traffic in an at­tempt to force them off­line just weeks ahead of a na­tional elec­tion.

The party said it had ex­pe­ri­enced a “so­phis­ti­cated and large-scale cy­ber­at­tack on Labour dig­i­tal plat­forms”, but the at­tack was re­pelled and no data was com­pro­mised. Hours later, a sec­ond dig­i­tal bom­bard­ment was launched.
