UK parliament hit by cyber attack targeting email accounts (VIDEO)

Britain’s parliament has been hit by a cyber attack aiming to crack weak email passwords, officials said on Saturday, according to Euronews

It comes just a month after hackers crippled part of the country’s National Health Service using ransomware.

The House of Commons said it was working with the National Cyber Security Centre to defend Westminster’s network and was confident it had protected all accounts and systems. As a precaution, it restricted remote access to the network, leaving some MPs and parliament staff locked out of their emails over the weekend.
