KUWAIT, Feb 9 (KUNA) -- The Kuwaiti Ministry of Interior (MoI) said on Friday that it has aborted an attempt to hack its website.
Concerned security agencies managed to prevent the attempt, but suspended the website for a while just as a precautionary measure in line with a relevant strategy and plan to address such bids, the ministry's public relations department said in a press release.
"The ministry's website was back to normal in a record time, and its electronic systems and official database were not affected at all," it added.
Immediate investigations were carried out in order to identify the hacker and bring him to accountability, it noted. (end) ays.fs.mt
