DDOS attacks in Sweden

The DDOS attacks, impacted the availability of the websites of train operators SJ, as well as those of south Swedish public transit operator Skånetrafiken, Region Skåne, and Sweden’s alcohol retail monopoly Systembolaget.

A group of 16 year olds have claimed responsibility, but this is not yet confirmed. No reason yet apparent on why this was done. Perhaps a disgruntled customer? More in English here.

If you have any updates, opinions on whats behind this, please post, I am very interested!

  1. Thanks for sharing Karen! I’d be interested to find out the outcome of this attack. Were the cyber criminals found out after? I wonder what there reason was for attacking a train operator.
