Ecuador says hacking attempts doubled after it ended Assange asylumHacking attempts on Ecuadorean government institutions have doubled since the country revoked WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s asylum at its London embassy last week, an official said on Monday. Telecommunications Vice Minister Patricio Real told reporters the websites for the country’s presidency, central bank and foreign ministry, among others, has received 40 million hacking attempts per day since Assange was dragged out of the embassy on Thursday by London police. Real did not attribute the hacking attempts to any group in particular, and said it would be difficult to identify the hackers.
