Several Maldives government websites are currently under cyberattack.

The website of the President of Maldives went unreachable on Saturday night. The official websites of the Maldives government and the official websites of the President, Foreign Ministry, and Tourism Ministry of Maldives were down and unreachable.

The reasons behind top government websites’ not working are yet to be ascertained.

Following the disruption, the two Maldivian government websites (President’s and Foreign Ministry) have now started working again. Tourism Ministry of Maldives website and Maldives government portal website are down and are unreachable.

Meanwhile Maldives President’s Office says that President’s Office website is currently facing an unexpected technical disruption. NCIT and other relevant entities are actively working on resolving this promptly.

There is no official word from the government so far.

The suspected cyber attacks come two days before the newly appointed Maldivian President Mohamed Muizzu is scheduled to visit China from January 8-12.
