The TRA said its Computer Emergency Response Team (aeCERT) succeeded in neutralising the danger and repairing the limited damage caused by the attack last week.

TRA director general Mohammed Nasser Al Ghanim said the organisation had traced the source of the cyber attack.

TRA has contacted the relevant Egyptian authorities in order to coordinate the efforts of the two countries on this matter, he said.
