Many Finnish gov sites and e services are currently down. Including many ministries, police and customs.

Reason currently unknown, all possibilities from tech breakdown to hacking remain open.

Valtori (ICT services for the central government) CEO Lehmus says it's distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. Started approx 16.30 local time targeting Valtori. Says that currently it's beaten, services are being restored.…
Next ~48hrs will be "interesting" ... was it one-off or are next waves coming.

Tomorrow is a regular workday, subsequent attacks would start causing actual disruptions to everyday life.
DDoS attack traffic affecting Finnish gov services coming from overseas. As of 19:30 still ongoing. Authorities requested service providers to redirect (likely blackhole) overseas traffic to restore services.…
Note: if foreign traffic to gov sites is blanket blackholed (unknown at this moment), expats and interested parties overseas can not use services or keep an eye on official briefings.
