The Austrian parliament’s website was down for 20 minutes in a suspected DDoS attack earlier this week . The Austrian parliament have since stated that a Turkish hackers’ group have claimed responsibility for the attack, with relations between Austria and Turkey having soured since last year. A similar attack took place on the Foreign Affairs and Defence Ministries websites last November. Stephen Gates, Chief Research Intelligence Analyst at NSFOCUS IB, comments:

“Global financial instability, worldwide refugee migrations, large scale social unrest and protest, in addition to the rise and fall of government power and control will likely be the catalysts that rock the Internet in 2017 and beyond. Every one of these global challenges will do nothing more than intensify Internet outages and accelerate cybercrime on a scale never seen before. DDoS attacks can be defeated, but it’s going to take a global crusade to deploy the correct defenses, and solve this problem once and for all. Those that go offline simply have little if any defenses in-place.”
