Cyberattack Cuts Service for Vodafone Portugal
Vodafone Portugal, one of the country’s top telecommunications companies, said Tuesday it suffered a cyberattack, while no confidential customer ended up compromised.
“A deliberate and malicious cyberattack aimed at causing damage and disruption” was underway, the company said.
The attack Feb. 7 affected the company’s 4G and 5G services, fixed line and SMS services, and digital and voice customer services, the company said.
The company hadn't received any ransom demand that would indicate it was hit by a ransomware attack. The CEO also said he had no indications the attackers had accessed subscriber information or other sensitive data. Specifics of the attack remain unknown.
