Ecuador says hit by 40 million cyber attacks since Assange arrest


Ecuador says hit by 40 million cyber attacks since Assange arrest 0 SHARES Share it! Share TweetBy Agence France-PresseEcuador said on Monday it has suffered 40 million cyber attacks on the webpages of public institutions since stripping Wikileaks founder Julian Assange of political asylum. Patricio Real, Ecuador’s deputy minister for information and communication technologies, said the attacks, which began on Thursday, had “principally come from the United States, Brazil, Holland, Germany, Romania, France, Austria and the United Kingdom,” as well as from the South American country itself. Assange was arrested and carried out of Ecuador’s embassy in London on Thursday after President Lenin Moreno removed his diplomatic protection following seven years of self-imposed exile in the building. However none of those institutions reported either the theft of information or the elimination of data.
