In a virtual press conference on the computer attacks by the Conti cybercriminal group on the country’s state institutions since Monday last week, Mora pointed out that this amount is 37 percent higher than the one disclosed three days ago.
Mora explained that more than four million cyber-attack attempts are divided into 2.7 million of Malware, 800,000 Phishing, 84,000 Cryptomining and 1.2 million of Command and Control Activities (Conti type).
Likewise, both Mora and the head of Micitt, Paola Vega, revealed Conti computer attacks on the servers of Fabrica Nacional de Licores and the municipalities of Golfito and Turrialba, but they said that they did not prove encryption or data theft.
“There were attempts of communication by means of control commands. They were mitigated, blocked. This weekend the Internet has been disconnected and the revision has begun”, indicated Mora, who said that these attempts were detected thanks to the protection systems recently installed in the institutions.
