Scottish Parliament targeted in ‘brute force’ cyber attack
The Scottish Parliament has been targeted by a “brute force” cyber attack, officials have said.
Chief executive Sir Paul Grice said the attack, from “external sources”, was similar to that which affected Westminster in June.
He confirmed the attack in a message to MSPs and staff with parliamentary email addresses, urging them to be vigilant.
Mr Grice said “robust cyber security measures” identified the attack early, and systems “remain fully operational”.
