    ATHENS (Sputnik) – Greek government websites have been hit by a cyberattack, a spokesman for the cabinet Stelios Petsas said.

    “In the evening, DDoS attacks on government websites took place. These attacks resulted in the dysfunction of some web pages”, Petsas said late Thursday in a statement.

    He stressed that certain measures had been taken and that the websites were soon restored.

    Greek media previously reported that several government websites had been hacked by a Turkish cybergroup, calling itself Anka Neferler. The Greek hacking group Anonymous Greece said it has staged a retaliatory attack on Turkish government websites.
