On Thursday, TV2 revealed that the party Labour's parliamentary group had been subjected to a hacker attack from an operator the Police Security Service (PST) connects to a foreign intelligence.
On Wednesday, Labor was informed by PST that the party had been the victim of an attempted digital attack through email.
According to PST, the group behind the hacking is related to foreign intelligence.
In a letter from Labor, representatives and employees are informed about the malicious e-mail that was sent on November 9, the day after the US presidential election last year.
Hans Kristian Amundsen says to TV 2 that the email appeared to have been sent from the Harvard university in the US. The email contained an invitation to learn more about the US presidential election and those who influenced it.
- The design was serious, and the content tailor made for those who were interested in the US election, says Amundsen.
On Friday, PST confirmed that also the Defense, Foreign Affairs, the Norwegian Radiation Protection, a college and PST itself, were hit by a comprehensive computer network operation from the Russian hacker group APT 29, also called "Cozy Bear."
