The House of Representatives confirmed on Thursday that its website fell victim to a cyber-attack last month.

In a statement, the House said the Digital Security Authority which investigated the incident on April 5 concluded that after all data was analysed, the source of the attacks originates from a range of IP addresses, traced back to a Turkish hacker team.

The Digital Security Authority, said the House, emphasised that due to the prompt handling of the incident, there were no negative repercussions and additional measures were taken for preventive purposes.
