Universities suffer cyber-attack


University students across the UK have been unable to submit work, after the academic computer network known as Janet came under cyber-attack.

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks began on Monday and are continuing, according to the network's operator, Jisc.

The attacks "have resulted in reduced connectivity and disruption", says a statement on Jisc's facebook page.

Engineers are working to restore normal service, it adds.
