A committee investigation has not ruled out a foreign cyber attack in the downing of the Register to Vote website two weeks before the Brexit vote. 

A report from the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (PACAC), published on Wednesday, highlighted that there could have been a foreign-led distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack on the European Union referendum site, causing it to crash on 7th June 2016.  

While they conclude that if it did happen, it was unlikely that it affected the referendum result, the report insists that the government improve cybersecurity to protect future votes. 

"PACAC is deeply concerned about these allegations about foreign interference," the report concluded. 

Further proof that future war will be cyber-based?  I think so.
