DDoS attacks on Sweden’ Transport Agencies Delay Train Service

The official website of Transportstyrelsen, Sweden’s Transport Agency (STA) came under a series of DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks on Thursday morning forcing it to go offline.

The attack on Transportstyrelsen came a day after the IT systems of Sweden’s Transport Administration (Trafikverket), which monitors railway traffic, was attacked by hackers leading to delays in trains schedule.

“I can confirm that in the morning we had something that was judging by a congestion attack,” Transport Agency Press Officer Mikael Andersson told Swedish public broadcaster SVT.
