Cyberattack Hits Greek Postal Data Centers, Service Disrupted

ATHENS – The Hellenic Post (ELTA) office said service was disrupted March 21 following a cyberattack late the night before that required isolating all the data center services, interrupting service.

It wasn’t known if the hackers managed to gain access to the targeted networks, said Kathimerini, nor how extensive the attack was or if there had been data breaches.

Investigations by ELTA’s IT department and the cyber security experts were continuing while the company was working to determine the cause and effect and trying to restore service, apologizing to customers.

Ironically, the European Union’s cybersecurity center, ENISA, is in Athens and just moved to a new headquarters that was inaugurated.

In January, 2020 several government websites were hit with cyberattacks claimed by Turkish hackers during another point of tension between the countries.

In November, 2021 a number of Greek shipping companies were struck by a ransomware hack that spread through their systems, further showing the susceptibilty of continuing cyber attacks.


ATHENS - The search-and-rescue operation to locate a missing F-4E Phantom II fighter jet pilot, Captain Efstathios Tsitlakidis, aged 31, was ended on Wednesday after an analysis of the collected evidence from the crash confirmed his death, a Hellenic Air Force announcement said.
