UK suspects the hackers meddling in the referendum on “Broksita”

A group of British parliamentarians published a report that expressed concerns about the involvement of hackers of foreign countries in a referendum on British exit from the EU. About it reports International Business Times.

The web site where you want to register to vote, stopped his work for half an hour on 7 June 2016. Experts report that the cause of his “fall” was the DDoS attack, which could carry out hackers from Russia or China, as these countries have already carried out similar hacks in the past.

It is reported that although this attack does not directly affect the outcome of the referendum, the UK needs to think about strengthening cybersecurity for the future of online voting.
