Noticias Caracol and Blu Radio, targets of cyberattack

In the middle of the noon news broadcast, Snail News reported being the victim of a cyber attack that prevented the work team from using the graphics on the screen.

“We tell our viewers that Noticias Caracol has been the victim of a cyber attack and for that reason they have not been able to see it on the screen,” the presenters said on the air.

Minutes later, the journalists explained that since the morning the servers of the channel and Blue Radio were attacked by a program called Ransomwarewhich hijacks data and restricts access to certain functions and parts of systems.

So far, neither Noticias Caracol nor Blu Radio have given further details.
