The Swedish Signals Intelligence agency (F�rsvarets Radioanstalt FRA) is currently under a large-scale DDoS attack.

At the moment www.fra.se is inaccessible.

FRA was in the news recently, as Sweden passed a law giving them legal permission to tap Internet traffic passing through Swedish national borders. For example, the majority of Russian international Internet traffic passes through Sweden.

The monitoring effectively started last month.
