A group linked to the hacker network Anonymous on Saturday said it had attacked the Swedish government's website, bringing it down for periods of time by overloading it with traffic.

CyberForce used Twitter to claim responsibility, saying, "We have succeeded in the attack against the government."

It also indicated it may launch more attacks at around midnight (2300 GMT) Saturday, saying "this op starts at 24.00," but it was not immediately clear who the targets for those attacks may be.

The group said it had used a denial of service attack against the government, which essentially swamps a website with false users.
