Italian Certified Email Accounts Get Hacked in Major Cyber Attack

Italy’s head of cybersecurity Roberto Baldoni revealed this week that hackers were able to get into thousands of Italian certified email accounts which include those of magistrates and security officials.


The attack, which was launched against a server near Rome in November 12, is the worst since January, according to Baldoni.


As many as 500,000 accounts, including those of some 9,000 magistrates as well as members of a top inter-governmental security agency may have been accessed and it still was not certain if the accounts of any ministers, spy chiefs or military bigwigs had been affected.
