Major communication companies operating under the Libyan Post Telecommunications & Information Technology Company (LPTIC), such as Libya Telecom and Technology, Al-Geel Al-Jadeed, and Al-Madar, have been facing cyber-attacks aimed at disrupting their services, the LPTIC said on Sunday.

In a Facebook statement, the company confirmed that the attacks caused several services and applications, including the MyLTT Subscriber Services Application, to become unstable.

"The company has acknowledged the attacks and has coordinated with the International Telecommunications Company and the cyber security team of the holding company to address the issue."

However, it added that attempts to hack the systems of its companies are ongoing and have become more organized and widespread globally, noting that similar attacks have been reported in countries like the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Denmark, Finland, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Turkey. 

As per reports, the attacks against Libya amounted to 114 GB, and approximately 4,400 attacks took place during the third quarter of this year. 

The Telecom Holding Company had previously announced that the data centre of Libya Telecom and Technology Company (LTT) had been under continuous attacks.
