Saudi Arabia e-security centre to prevent hacking
Riyadh: Saudi Arabia has set up a national e-security centre to protect the country`s e-system from hackers, a media report said Tuesday.
Several hackers have been attacking government websites to steal data by planting undetected viruses for months, the centre`s director, Abdulrahman Al Mueeqal, was quoted as saying by the Al Sharq Al Awsat newspaper.
The centre will review the e-security system and set criteria for software to immediately stop the use of unlicensed programmes, he said.
In May, the Saudi interior ministry said that a series of government websites were exposed to coordinated hacking attacks.
Among them, the interior ministry website was hacked by hundreds of IPs from various countries.
