The Labour Party says it has successfully defeated a cyber-attack targeted at its digital platforms.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

Labour said the attack "failed" because of the party's "robust" security system and no data breach had occurred.

The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack floods a computer server with traffic to try to take it offline.

A Labour source said that attacks came from computers in Russia and Brazil but the BBC's Gordon Corera has been told the attack was not linked to a state.

Our security correspondent said he had been told the attack was a low-level incident - not a large-scale and sophisticated attack.

A National Cyber Security Centre spokesman said the Labour Party followed the correct procedure and notified them swiftly, adding: "The attack was not successful and the incident is now closed."

Meanwhile, Labour has denied that there has been a data breach or a security flaw in its systems after the Times reported the party's website had exposed the names of online donors.
