Parliament has been hit by a cyber attack, officials at Westminster say.
The "sustained" hack began on Friday night, prompting officials to disable remote access to the emails of MPs, peers and their staff as a safeguard.
The parliamentary authorities said hackers had mounted a "determined attack" on all user accounts "in an attempt to identify weak passwords".
Government sources say it appeared the attack has been contained but it will "remain vigilant".
A parliamentary spokeswoman said they were investigating the attack and liaising with the National Cyber Security Centre.

I love how everyone who is good at computers happens to live in their mother's basement according to politicians.

These politicians are spending less on tech, while it grows exponentially and the worst part is they just give all the money to themselves.
