The Labour Party has suffered its second cyber-attack in two days, dealing a crushing blow to the party in the lead-up to December’s General Election. The attacks took place on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th November. On both occasions, they were distributed denial of service attacks, in which botnets flooded servers with overwhelming traffic levels. As yet the attacker remains unidentified, but the attacks have been reported to the National Cybersecurity Centre.
