Part of the Belgian Ministry of Defence’s network was down for several days as a result of a “serious” cyber attack after a security hole was discovered in the software.
Since last Thursday, part of the computer network was down, including the mail system, as a result of the attack. It remains unclear who the perpetrator is, according to reports from VRT News.
