Foreign power was behind cyber-attack on Czech Foreign ministry
A foreign state staged the latest cyber-attack targeting the Czech Foreign Ministry, the Senate’s security committee said on Tuesday, though it did not identify the nation concerned or provide any details on the incident.
The Czech daily Denik N reported that the cyber-attack on the Foreign Ministry had taken place in June but that no confidential data was compromised. Citing three sources, the paper also said the attack had originated in Russia.
Last December, the Czech counter-intelligence service, BIS, said in its annual report that Russia’s intelligence services were behind cyber-attacks targeting the Foreign Ministry in 2017.
