Norway's domestic intelligence agency (PST) has blamed a Russian hacker group linked to the GRU (Russian Military Intelligence) for a cyberattack on the Norwegian parliament earlier this year.
The Norwegians said the likely perpetrators were the Fancy Bear collective, a group regularly accused of attacks including during US elections, but there is insufficient evidence to pursue charges.
“This has been a significant attack,” Marianne Andreassen, the parliament’s non-elected chief administrator, said following the August attack.
A “limited number” of parliamentarians and employees were impacted, and have been informed, she continued, although she declined to say how many were affected.
