DDoS attacks target EU political parties as elections begin
Quote:Hacktivists are conducting DDoS attacks on European political parties that represent and promote strategies opposing their interests, according to a report by Cloudflare.

The European Parliament elections are already underway in the Netherlands and are set to begin in 26 more countries across the EU over the coming days, igniting politically motivated cyberattacks.

Cloudflare reports that it has mitigated at least three distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack waves on various election-related sites in the Netherlands, as well as several political parties.

The internet company has shared information about two DDoS attacks occurring on June 5 and 6.

The first one peaked at 115 million requests per hour, with one site getting hit with 73,000 requests per second for four hours.
