Hacker unsuccessfully tried to attack Larnaca airport server


A Turkish hacker unsuccessfully tried to attack a Larnaca airport server, a source told CNA, noting that the attack was confirmed during the early hours of Saturday.

The same hacker had during the last week of March tried, also unsuccessfully, to attack the defence ministry website.

The source told CNA that as soon as the authorities realised the hacker`s attempt, the server was disconnected from the other systems of the airport and the Digital Security Authority and the Commissioner for Personal Data Protection were informed.

The same source noted that an investigation was launched as regards this incident and that none of the airport`s systems crucial were affected.

The same hacker had last November attempted to attack a website supporting new US President, Joe Biden.
