Vienna: Austria’s Foreign Ministry has reported that its information technology systems were facing a serious cyberattack, possibly from a foreign country. Due to the severity and nature of the attack, it could not be excluded that it is a targeted attack by a state actor, Efe news quoted a Ministry statement as saying on Saturday.

It added that in the past, some European countries had been targeted similarly. The attack was detected late Saturday and countermeasures were immediately put in place, the Ministry said.

Its spokesperson, Peter Guschelbauer, confirmed to the Austria Press Agency that despite the quick response, the attack continued. (IANS)
