Library of Congress hit with a denial-of-service attack
Some of the U.S. Library of Congress’s websites are currently inaccessible as the result of a denial-of-service attack, the Library of Congress announced Monday.
The cyberattack was originally detected on July 17, a spokesperson told FedScoop. The attack has also caused other websites hosted by the LOC, including the U.S. Copyright Office, to go down. Library of Congress employees were reportedly unable to access their work email accounts or visit internal websites.
“The Library is working to maintain access to its online services while ensuring security,” the spokesperson said.
