On the same day, the Finnish Parliament’s website was temporarily made inaccessible by a suspected cyber attack today. Classroom officials have informed via social media that the site has suffered an attack DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), which makes an online service unavailable to users. Security specialists are now working to limit the damage caused by the attack, which occurred around 2.30pm local time. According to Finnish TV Yle, Russian hackers are behind the attack. The TV mentions a post on Telegram, in which the collective NoName057 (06) wrote that it had made a “friendly visit” to neighboring Finland, which wants to join NATO. For Yle, this is the same hacker group that has carried out cyber attacks against state institutions in Poland, Lithuania and Norway in the past. In May, the Finnish parliament voted for the country to join NATO, putting an end to decades of neutrality, due to the alteration of the European security architecture caused by the war in Ukraine. Relations have deteriorated between the two countries, which share a 1,340 km long border.
