MOSCOW, August 20. /TASS/. The Russian Central Bank is fixing a growing number of virus attacks on its e-mail servers, says the Izvestia daily on Thursday citing a report of the bank’s chief department for information security.
"The Central Bank fixes increasingly often the incidents in which email messages sent via the internet and containing a malicious code are obtained," says the deputy head of the chief department, Artyom Sychev.
"Messages have come from organizations as well as from unknown senders, including foreign ones," he told the newspaper. "Malicious programs inserted in the emails were the latest modifications, not detected by security tools on the day the emails arrived," he explained.
Sychev told the newspaper that similarity of methods seen in different attacks meant that they had been planned and carried out from one center.
The bank’s press service says that none of the virus attacks has reached its aim so far.
