"The EU has reported a 'serious' cyber attack on the Commission and External Action Service on the eve of a summit in Brussels, a spokesman told the BBC. Crucial decisions on the future structure of the EU, economic strategy and the ongoing war in Libya are to be discussed at the two-day talks. Details were not given but other sources compared the attack to a recent assault on France's finance ministry. 'We're often hit by cyber attacks but this is a big one,' one source said." (03/23/11)
