EU investigating ‘IT security incident’ involving multiple agencies

I’ll be watching for further details…:

Cybersecurity experts at the European Union are investigating an “IT security incident” involving multiple institutions, though “no major information breach” has been detected, EU officials said Tuesday.

The scope and nature of the incident were not immediately clear, but a spokesperson for the European Commission, the EU’s executive branch, said the commission had set up a “24/7 monitoring service” in response to the incident.

“The European Commission and other EU institutions, bodies or agencies have experienced an IT security incident in their IT infrastructure,” the commission spokesperson said in an email.

A spokesperson for the European Parliament said the parliament and other EU bodies had “received an alert on [a] possible vulnerability in its IT infrastructure.” The parliament “took immediate measures to check and protect its servers against this vulnerability,” the spokesperson said.
