No data compromised in TSTT malware attack

    Public Utilities Minister Marvin Gonzales.

    No data was compromised in a malware attack on TSTT earlier this year.

    In March, there was a malware incursion into TSTT’s software, which affected customers’ ability to access and pay for services.

    In the Senate today, Public Utilities Minister Marvin Gonzalez said an investigation was launched immediately after the issue was detected.

    He says according to TSTT, no customer, employee, critical company or public cloud data were compromised due to stringent cyber security measures that were already in place.

    What was affected though, was the company’s revenue collection.

    Earlier this year, the Minister said the company had taken steps to prevent a possible recurrence of the incident.

    Malware is software that is specifically designed to disrupt, damage, or gain unauthorized access to a computer system.
