Hacking attempts made on computers of Catalan Trial judges
Spain’s National Intelligence Center says the attempts did not achieve their intended goal
Spain’s National Intelligence Center (CNI) has detected computer hacking attempts on the email accounts of judges who presided over the Catalan Trial in the Supreme Court.
The attacks were directed at the president of the courtroom, Manuel Marchena, the six other judges on the case, and the four prosecutors, as Spanish newspaper El Confidencial reported.
According to the CNI, attempts were unsuccessful in achieving their intended goal. However, they have asked magistrates to increase the security measures of their computers.
The CNI focuses on research in independent groups and in its activity on social networks. The group Anonymous Catalonia says it has entered Marchena's mail and shows screenshots on Twitter but adds that they would not do any harm, and they say they accessed the account by chance.
