DDoS cyberattack against the European Parliament's website

11/23/2022

The European Parliament's website has been the victim of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyberattack, which impacted the availability of the website for a few hours.

The President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, posted a tweet on her official account reporting the attack and indicating that a pro-Russian group had claimed responsibility for it, which is consistent with the Killnet group's Telegram message claiming to be responsible for the incident.
