Hackers have mounted a “sophisticated and large scale cyber attack” on Labour’s digital platforms, the party has said.
A spokeswoman said the incident had been reported to the National Cyber Security Centre but they were confident no data breach had occurred.
Some campaigning activities were temporarily slowed, but the systems were back up to speed by Tuesday morning.
“We have experienced a sophisticated and large scale cyber attack on Labour digital platforms,” the spokeswoman said.
“We took swift action and these attempts failed due to our robust security systems. The integrity of all our platforms was maintained and we are confident that no data breach occurred.
“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.”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
