ESET on the Cyberattack on the European Parliament

The European Parliament became the target of a cyber attack shortly after MEPs approved a resolution labeling Russia a "state sponsor of terrorism".

"I confirm that the Parliament has been cyberattacked, but the relevant agencies are doing their job well," Dita Charanzová, MEP from the Czech Republic and Vice-President of the European Parliament in charge of cybersecurity, said in a statement.

It is a denial of service (DDOS) attack, in which massive amounts of traffic are sent to servers in an attempt to block internet users from accessing websites, confirmed Marcel Kolaja, a member of the European Parliament of the Czech Pirates party.

Comment from Jake Moore Global Cyber ​​Security Consultant at ESET:

“Unfortunately, Russian threat actors trying to undermine Western democracies is not news. The fundamental pillar of all democracies is free and fair elections and voting. Reports from investigations as well as their own claims demonstrate that Russian cyberattacks are focused on election processes and infrastructure. DDoS attacks are nothing new, but they can be very powerful. On the other hand, of course, they are very easy to deal with with today's technology. Strengthening security and creating DDoS-resistant environments is not impossible. The current geopolitical situation requires concerted efforts for cross-border security at the physical level as well as in cyberspace to safeguard democracy."
