Hellenic Post suffers a cyber-attack

Hellenic Post (ELTA) announced on Monday the temporary suspension of the commercial IT system of all post offices due to a cyber-attack through malware the previous night.

According to a statement, ELTA was the target of "a cyber-attack on its information systems last night through malware. The immediate reaction and the actions of the competent officials limited and prevented the spread of the attack. We were immediately informed and we are working closely with all relevant government authorities as well as with IT companies specialising in cybersecurity."

As a precaution and for security reasons, it was decided to isolate the company's entire data centre until all the required actions are completed. Therefore, we announce the temporary suspension of the commercial IT system of all post offices and there will be, later in the day, new information for the public and our customers."

Hellenic Post, the announcement concluded, apologizes for the temporary inconvenience, which is due to the actions of common cybercriminals and gives its assurance that all possible efforts are being made for a return to normalcy as soon as possible.
