HSE Update on Denial-of-Service attack


The Irish Government Network is currently experiencing a Denial-of-Service attack by a third party.

This comprises a massive amount of attempted data connections directed toward our networks - designed to flood the available channels, and disrupt our ability to communicate, and thus, operate.

At this moment in time we are no longer experiencing any degradation on our services. We are working closely with Government Networks and will continue to monitor the situation with them over the weekend.

If there is any change to this position we will have Ops staff on standby and will update if necessary

Thank you all for your patience in this regard.
