The Cuban Foreign Ministry has denounced that its website suffered a cyberattack on Tuesday that caused «limited» access for several hours, although it has clarified that the integrity of the portal was not compromised at any time.

The department itself has explained Wednesday on social networks that hackers intentionally saturated the servers, which left the website unusable from 11.00 (local time).

«This attack is part of the communication war against Cuba,» said the Ministry, which has «strongly» denounced actions that violate the rules «governing relations for the peaceful and responsible use of cyberspace».
