Parliament has been hit by a cyber attack that has left MPs unable to access their emails if not in Westminster.

MPs were alerted to the hack on Friday night and have reported problems getting into their email accounts on Saturday.

The attack comes just days after reports that passwords of ministers were being flogged online after hacking groups managed to gain access.

The parliamentary authorities are working with the National Cyber Security Centre to protect the network and ascertain the scale of the damage.

I think life is becoming too complex for mere humans to manage. Luckily AI will save us from ourselves. /s

Probably one of our screw ups.

LOL. That was my first thought.

Anyway, much like our Congress, it's not like these clowns were doing anything of importance.
