After updating the SecNews reader, Fotis Mavrakis, from the friendly website www.RetroComputers.gr, the Registry of [.gr] and [.el] domain names suffered attack against its information systems. This attack is part of a more general effort at the international level to negatively affect the operation of the Internet Name Registers. Since the incident has been investigated, no evidence has been obtained personal data leakage.
As part of the efforts of the [.gr] and [.el] domain name registry to ensure the integrity of its data, as well as to protect the recipients of the internet names, immediately changed the authorization codes for [.gr] and [.el] domain names.
In addition, as a precautionary measure, as well as more generally to facilitate beneficiaries, we inform you that the process of changing the authorization codes for [.gr] and [.el] domain names will be changed soon.
If you wish to be notified new password or change it, you can contact your registrar.
The organization has sent a bulk message to all clients regarding the attack, and should inform it and the Data Protection Authority (www.dpa.gr) for leakage if personal data has been intercepted.
SecNews contacted the Greek Registry of Names (.gr) and let you know that the details of the attack are still under investigation.
