Killnet hits EU Parliament website with DDoS attack

The European Parliament website has been taken down by a DDoS attack claimed by Anonymous Russia, a member of the pro-Russian hacktivist group Killnet.

The President of the European Parliament confirmed the event, saying that the Parliament’s ‘IT experts are pushing back against it and protecting our systems’.

The attack occurred after the European Parliament designated Russia a state sponsor of terrorism and members advocated that Russia be more isolated internationally.
