Cyber attack on government website

An overload (DDoS) attack was directed at the government website kormany.hu from IP addresses outside Hungary in three waves between 9.08 p.m. and 10.32 p.m. Sunday.

The most significant period of the attack occurred between 9.30 p.m. and 9.50 p.m.

The DDoS defence system, purchased, installed and operated by the Interior Ministry in 2017, successfully averted the attack.

No lapse in services occurred during the attack.
