By John E Dunn
18 March 2013
Norwayâs national telecoms provider Telenor has been hit by a major case of
industrial espionage with attackers stealing a sizable cache of files and
emails from unnamed executives, local media have reported.
According to translated reports, the companyâs 20-person security team became
aware of suspicious traffic from the PCs of employees to external IP addresses
last Friday, which turned out to be a major data theft that turned over files,
emails and passwords.
The attacks were quickly rated as serious enough to be reported to the
countryâs Cyberforsvaret defence service as well as the national CERT to allow
for a wider national alert.
What was stolen or which employees were hacked has not been revealed.
