President’s Facebook accounts reactivated (Update)

President Nicos Anastasiades’ Facebook account is up and running again after it was suspended for a few hours on Thursday for security reasons.

At around noon, Anastasiades said on his Twitter account that his Facebook page was temporarily deactivated citing security reasons. A few hours later, the Facebook account was back on.

“For security reasons my Facebook page was deactivated for a few hours as another account sent a suspicious message. The timely tackling of the incident prevented a possible virus spread to other accounts,” the president’s profile said after the account was activated again.

According to the daily Politis, the president had received a message on Facebook from former health minister Stavros Malas, but was addressed to “Mustafa”.

Earlier in the week, Malas announced that both his Twitter and Facebook accounts had been hacked.

“These accounts were called Stavros Malas and Stavros Malas II and I no longer have access to them,” he said.

He also had said was not responsible for any posts and apologised for any inconvenience. He said that he reported the issue to the police.
