ATTACKS: Britain's largest abortion provider, British Pregnancy Advisory Service, says thousands of attempts have been made to hack its website following a high-profile security breach when personal details of 10,000 women were stolen.
THE EXTENT: It says the latest attacks were low-level and patients' details remain secure. It says no medical records are kept on the site.
ORIGINS: The service says about a third of the Internet addresses used in the attempts were in North America, but noted that did not mean the hackers themselves were based there.
