Concerns were raised on Friday after Greek government websites were targeted by hackers on Thursday for a second time within just a few days, fueling calls for stronger cyber protection.
Despite speculation that the hackers could have been from Turkey, a government official said yesterday that it is very difficult to ascertain who the culprits were.
Britain's anti-hacking laws are outdated and placing the country's cybersecurity at risk, according to a new report released on Jan. 22.
The Computer Misuse Act 1990 is now 30 years old and must be updated, according to the Criminal Law Reform Now Network (CLRNN), a group of academics from Birmingham and Cambridge universities that specializes in legal reform projects.
Last week's attacks by Turkish hackers on websites of Greek state bodies including the Greek Foreign and Finance ministries, the National Intelligence Service (EYP) and Parliament are the latest in a string of such incidents over the years which, however, have not led to any data being stolen, according to sources.
