JAKARTA, KOMPAS — Cyber threats against government institutions have continued with a recent attack against a website operated by the National Cyber and Crypto Agency (BSSN). The BSSN has said its ability to ward of the attack was hampered by regulatory problems and a lack of funding.

BSSN spokesman Anton Setiawan said in Jakarta on Tuesday (26/10/2021) that the agency’s internal team was investigating the cyberattack against the National Malware Center (Pusmanas) run by the agency. The agency suspected that the attack had come from hackers based in Brazil as indicated by the messages left by the hackers on the defaced home page of the Pusmanas site.
