The World Health Organization (WHO) has undergone a series of cyberattacks since early April. The organization’s employees received phishing emails, Bloomberg reported on Thursday, May 7th. The attacks began on April 3rd, and the letters contained links. When you click on them on the working computers of users, malicious software could be installed.
Some of the letters were in the form of interview requests or newsletters about coronavirus.
According to Flavio Agio, WHO chief information security specialist, the organization was subjected to “very smart attacks”, but they were unsuccessful.
“We are dealing with information war and cyberwar at the same time,” Agio said.
Some security experts believe the Iranian hacker group was behind the attack.
