Norway says China cyber attacked her parliament in March

Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soereide said on Monday that a March 10 cyber attack on the Nordic country’s parliament e-mail system was carried out from China, calling on authorities there to take steps to prevent such activity in future.

An investigation by the country’s intelligence services had revealed the attack came from China and several of Norway’s allies, the European Union and Microsoft, had also confirmed this conclusion, she added.

The Chinese ambassador to Norway on Monday had been summoned to discuss the issue directly, Soereide said.
