"LVRTC's technological resources have been under cyber attack for more than 7 hours. To mitigate and localize the scope of the attack, we have restricted access to certain services and some customers may find electronic identity functionality provided by LVRTC unavailable," the agency said.
LVRTC tehnoloģiskie resursi jau vairāk nekā 7 stundas piedzīvo kiberuzbrukumu. Lai mazinātu un lokalizētu uzbrukuma apjomu, esam ierobežojuši piekļuvi atsevišķiem pakalpojumiem un daļai klientu var būt nepieejama LVRTC rīku nodrošinātā elektroniskās identitātes funkcionalitāte. pic.twitter.com/vkSN68vMBN— LVRTC/TV torņa ziņas (@LVRTC_TVtornis) July 6, 2022
National cyber security agency CERT.lv has been informed, the LVRTC said, noting that its technical platforms have already been attacked several times this year. @certlv
"The ongoing attack is one of the longest, as well as being large-scale and technologically complicated," it said.
LVRTC is a 100% state-owned company that ensures that every person in Latvia is able to quickly and securely receive and transmit information.
As part of its remit it is the main national operator of the terrestrial broadcasting network for radio and television programs.
No details were given of the source of the cyber-attack or its severity, but you probably don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to deduce the likely culprit.
