Vodafone Portugal Hit by Hackers

Alert cyber attack Vodafone

Vodafone’s Portuguese unit said on Tuesday a hacker attack overnight had disrupted its services but assured its customers that their personal data had not been compromised as a result of the incident, which is under investigation.

Vodafone Portugal said in a statement its system faced technical problems on Monday evening, with thousands of customers reporting they were unable to make calls or access the internet on their phones or computers.

Vodafone Portugal said it was “determined to restore the normality of services” and mobile use was gradually recovering. The 4G network remains unavailable but customers in most of the country can use 3G.
