Türk Telekom fends off cyber attack, restores Internet access

Must read

Türk Telekom has restored Internet access after a cyber attack caused connectivity problems, the company said on Monday, adding that it was working to limit any impact on users, Reuters reported.

Turkey’s largest telecoms group said earlier on Monday it had been hit by a cyber attack that led to problems with Internet access but did not specify who had carried out the attack. It said the strike had targeted its DNS addresses.

In a separate statement later on Monday, Türk Telekom said Internet access had been restored to normal as of 1545 GMT.

“The problem caused by an operator abroad has been solved, with domestic and international Internet traffic returning to normal flow,” the company said.

On Friday Turkish hackers attacked the webpages of Greek ministries amid diplomatic tension between the two NATO allies over Libya and the east Mediterranean.
