    In a distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that began on Sunday, 26 August, and extended into today, Spain's central bank was knocked offline. While Banco de Espana struggled to fight off the attack, business operations were not disrupted, according to Reuters. "We suffered a denial-of-service attack that intermittently affected access to our website, but it had no effect on the normal functioning of the entity," a spokeswoman for Banco de Espana wrote in an email.
