After a “thorough evaluation of all data”, the land registry department on Sunday said the technical problem that saw it go offline since Wednesday was due to a “cyber attack”

The department said that due to the nature of the problem and the size of the systems, they will be gradually restored, starting with the restoration of the basic work of the district offices.

The indications are that no data was leaked and that the problem did not go beyond the land registry portal.

The site went down on Wednesday evening.

Land registration director Elikkos Elia told CNA on Saturday “we’re fighting at the same pace, technicians are making efforts to bring back the portal”.
