Hackers take down parliament website

A hacker attack took the Swedish Parliament’s website offline for several hours Tuesday.

Anna Olderius, the Head of External Communications at parliament’s Information Department, tells Swedish Radio News that the attack was serious, but refuses to go into details, such as whether the incursion was from within the country or from outside.

The site was brought down at around 11:00 AM Tuesday, and was back up just over three hours later.
