Chisinau, 15 July /MOLDPRES/ - The Court of Accounts of Moldova has  informed that the institution’s official webpage, www.ccrm.md, was the target of a cyber attack and all public databases were destroyed.  

“It is for the first time when the supreme audit institution faces such a situation. The destruction of the public page took place in the context of important audits and with impact in the society, at the stage of reporting and making public of the most significant audit missions planned in the institution’s work,’’ the Court of Accounts said.  

The needed investigations will identify whether the attack has been organized by hackers arbitrarily, on purposes of blackmailing, or it is about a planned order, in order to create impediments to the work of the country’s supreme audit institution.  

The Court of Accounts works for the re-establishment of the official electronic page and this process will last for a while, with all needed efforts taken for the page to be functional as soon as possible.

“In this context, we inform you that the Court of Accounts will further use, for the making public of audit reports, the public accounts on social networks and we urge you to watch us on the aforementioned accounts,’’ reads a press release by the institution.
