A denial of service attack on Thursday morning to the Finnish Police website was the third attack of its kind this week.
The website of the Finnish Police has been the target of repeated denial of service attacks this week, with the latest service disruption on Thursday downing the website for several hours. It marked the third such attack to the poliisi.fi webpage in the last few days.
The first attack took place on Tuesday, and downed the website from late morning to 7 pm. Wednesday marked a smaller attack of the same nature.
Tomi Moilanen, Chief Information Security Officer with the National Police Board, says the attacks have not led the police to implement any extraordinary measures quite yet. The attacks have also not detrimentally affected the various online services available on the site.
The police have filed an investigation request with the National Bureau of Investigation in order to get to the bottom of the cyber attacks.
