The identity of advanced hackers who attempted to get into the WHO is still unknown. Hack attempts against the agency have been on the rise since the novel coronavirus has continued to spread. Alexander Urbelis, a cybersecurity expert and attorney, said he was alerted to suspicious activity when a group of hackers were attempting to copy the WHO’s internal email system. A warning was published last month by the agency alerting people to the scams that numerous hackers were trying to run. The latest identified hacking attempt currently has an unknown purpose.
