Czech police shelve investigation into hacker attack on election site

Czech police say they have shelved an investigation into a hacking attack on the website of the national statistical office as it updated results from parliamentary elections last October.

The attack caused the website of the Czech Statistical Office to collapse. The office said the results of counting for elections to the lower house of parliament were not affected.

Police, according to the news website of Czech Radio, were not able to identify where the attack originated. The statistical office said that it had stepped up its security measures following the attack.
