The Norwegian parliament said it had halted what had been a “significant cyber attack” against it.

Director Marianne Andreassen said the email accounts of several members and staff of Norway’s main opposition Labor Party were hacked.

“We take this very seriously,” he said.

“And we paid the utmost attention to analyzing the situation to get a general picture of the accident and the potential extent of the damage.”

The Norwegian National Security Authority said it had been “assisting parliament with analysis and technical assistance” for several days.

In January, the personal data of hundreds of German politicians, including Chancellor Angela Merkel, were stolen and posted online.

And last year, Australia’s cyber intelligence agency blamed China after hackers attempted to break into the Australian parliament, something Chinese officials have denied.
