Telecom Argentina on the agenda with cyber attack
Today, even the largest companies in the world can face large-scale cyber attacks. Recently, hackers are asking for ransom with crypto money from the institutions they are attacking. The reason for this is that when cryptocurrencies are received, it is almost impossible to trace hackers.
Finally, Telecom Argentina, one of Argentina’s largest Telecom companies, has been subjected to a major cyber attack. Hackers who took control of Telecom Argentina’s network demanded 109.345 XMR cryptocurrencies worth $ 7.5 million in return. Moreover, the hackers also stated that if the payment is not made within 2 days, they will double the amount they want.
Controlling almost the entire network has left the authorities in a difficult situation. Even in the mail sent to the employees from the company, it was stated that the company network was never used, suspicious e-mails were not opened and company computers were not used until the problem was resolved.
