The Ministry of Health was the target of a computer attack by the hacking group CyberTeam. The attackers will have shared on Twitter a list with names and passwords of employees, advances Lusa. According to Ministry sources, the attack is already being investigated by the National Cybersecurity Center, the Judicial Police and the Shared Services of the Ministry of Health.
In the last few months attacks on public entities have increased and in March the CyberTeam group has accessed thousands of email addresses and passwords from public entities, including the office of the Presidency of the Republic, Attorney General's Office, police, banks, parties, Security Social and even football clubs, threatened to release these data online in response to the start of the Anonymous collective case trial.
That trial involved 21 people accused of hacking, including Rui Cruz, the founder of TugaLeaks. This attack, which even released data on websites for adults, was retaliation to divert attention from the trial.
In April, the CyberTeam group claimed an EDP computer attack, which although it did not change the power supply, the customer service was affected. The hackers allegedly had access to documents containing data on hundreds of employees of the group, in operations in the United States.
Last week, the hacking group claims to have attacked other institutions such as the Lisbon City Council and the Union of Judicial Officials.
SAPO TEK has already asked the National Cybersecurity Center for more details on the new attack but has yet to receive a response.
