Major Canadian Institutions Targeted in Cyberattacks.

October 4, 2023


Major Canadian institutions, including military and Parliament websites, have been targeted in recent cyberattacks. The Indian Cyber Force hacker group claims responsibility, causing disruption in various government-operated web platforms. However, Canada’s signals-intelligence agency reassures that these “nuisance” attacks probably haven’t compromised private data.

Canadian Armed Forces acknowledged that its website was temporarily inaccessible for mobile users after a DoDDS attack. The issue was resolved.
House of Commons website also suffered from a DDoS attack, resulting in slow loading or incomplete page displays starting Mondaywithin hours. Elections Canada faced a denial-of-service attack for about an hour early Wednesday.
