Moldova’s Court of Accounts Suffers Cyberattack, Public Databases And Audits Destroyed
Moldova’s “Court of Accounts” has suffered a cyberattack resulting in the agency’s public databases and audits being destroyed.
Moldovia’s state news agency Moldpres reported on behalf of the Court of Accounts that their website was hacked, and threat actors destroyed audit reports and other public data.
“It is for the first time when the supreme audit institution faces such a situation. The destruction of the public page took place in the context of important audits and with impact in the society, at the stage of reporting and making public of the most significant audit missions planned in the institution’s work,’’ the Court of Accounts said.
The site is down at the moment.
“The needed investigations will identify whether the attack has been organized by hackers arbitrarily, on purposes of blackmailing, or it is about a planned order, in order to create impediments to the work of the country’s supreme audit institution,” said the Court of Accounts.
