Cyber Attack on Albanian Parliament and One Albania Telecom(Latest update)

In a recent revelation, the Albanian Parliament and telecom giant One Albania Telecom fell prey to sophisticated cyber attacks, sending shockwaves through the nation’s digital infrastructure. The National Authority for Electronic Certification and Cyber Security (AKCESK) disclosed the breach, uncovering vulnerabilities in critical entities not classified as essential information infrastructure. As One Albania, with its 1.5 million subscribers, swiftly assured the public of recovery, AKCESK intensified efforts to trace the origins and fortify cybersecurity. The situation took a geopolitical turn as Iranian hacker group Homeland Justice claimed responsibility, calling for a comprehensive reevaluation of Albania’s cybersecurity strategies amidst evolving threats.
