Russia-backed hackers attack Latvian cyberspace

Latvia's national cyber-security agency, CERT.LV, said September 4 that "today several hacktivist groups supported by Russia are carrying out large-scale cyber attacks against institutions in the state, financial and healthcare sectors."

According to CERT.LV so far the geek groups in question have launched 'phishing' attacks on users of e-mail (webmail) systems in the public sector, defacing web pages and possible ransomware attacks on the healthcare industry.

If suspicious activity is spotted, you can report it to CERT.LV by calling 67085888 or writing to [email protected].
