UAE thwarts cyber attacks from Egypt

Abu Dhabi, July 24 (IANS/WAM) The UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) said it has successfully thwarted attempts by hackers from Egypt to damage some government websites.

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.

"We agreed to provide the Egyptian authorities with a list of IP addresses from which the cyber infiltration attempts originated," he said.
