A terrorist investigation began in Rome following a hacker attack on the health system site of the Lazio metropolitan area on the night of July 31 to August 1.
The Rome prosecutor’s office is investigating suspected terrorism in connection with a hacker attack on the health system site of the Lazio metropolitan area, which was carried out on the night of Saturday to Sunday.
According to TASS, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the European Police Agency (Europol) have joined the investigation of the hacker attack. Researchers are trying to establish similarities with other ransomware attacks that have occurred in the past in Italy and abroad. In connection with the incident, the Rome prosecutor’s office launched an investigation under the article on terrorism.
According to the newspaper La Repubblica, the cyberattacks are allegedly carried out from Germany. Some Italian media outlets write about a “contract crime” from abroad that threatens public order and state security. According to them, there is a threat of leakage of personal data of residents of Italy and representatives of the country’s leadership.
Recall that due to a cyberattack, the registration for vaccination against coronavirus was suspended. The vaccination scheduling system came under attack on Sunday and is still down. Alessio D’Amato, Lazio’s health advisor, said on Wednesday that authorities hope to restore the system within the next 72 hours by launching two new electronic platforms.
