— Cancillería de Cuba (@CubaMINREX) July 16, 2021 “We denounce that the website of our Foreign Ministry has received a denial of services (DDoS) cyberattack since July 11, 2021. This attack generated false accesses in large numbers, compromising our servers.” “These actions are part of the cyber and communication war that is generated against Cuba,” the Foreign Minister said, explaining that “the main IP addresses that generated false accesses in large numbers and tried to crash our servers are geolocated in the United States.”

Moreover, the minister’s website was hit by 580,000 entries in at least 30 minutes from 9:53 am to 10:23 am local time. The attacks surpassed by far the total number of visits to the website daily and temporarily collapsed its services.
