The UK’s Labour Party says it has experienced a “sophisticated and large-scale cyber attack” on its digital platforms.
The party said in a statement that swift action was taken and no data breach had occurred. The attack “failed” failed due to the organisation’s ‘robust security’ systems.
“The integrity of all our platforms was maintained and we are confident that no data breach occurred,” the statement said.
“Our security procedures have slowed down some of our campaign activities, but these were restored this morning and we are back up to full speed. We have reported the matter to the National Cyber Security Centre.
“Labour is out campaigning hard both on and offline for a Labour government that will bring the real change our country needs.”
