Large-scale cyberattack hits Labour Party systems

A month out from UK’s General Election, the Labour Party reported they had been hit with a cyberattack. The Labour Party stated that the attack was sophisticated and affected the party website, which was down yesterday while security experts worked on responding to the attack. The Labour Party stated that although the cyberattack affected online campaigning devices and platforms, they have no reason to believe that a breach of data occurred.

UK’s General Elections will be held on the 12th of December, and a successful cyberattack could have had large effects on the Labour Party and its performance in the elections.
