Hackers hit Scottish Parliament with ‘brute force cyber-attack’
IT systems at the Scottish Parliament have been struck by a “brute force cyber-attack” from an unknown source. Staff have been advised to change passwords as a result of the attack.
Paul Grice, Chief Executive at Holyrood, says that the attack is similar to the one Westminster suffered back in June. The hackers have attempted to crack passwords as well as trying to access parliamentary emails.
