ITALY: Nationwide Internet Outages, Cyber Attack?


On Sunday, Italy reported widespread internet outages.

Confirmed: #Italy is in the midst of a major internet outage with high impact to leading operator Telecom Italia; real-time network data show national connectivity at 26% of ordinary levels; incident ongoing,” NetBlocks stated.

Metrics showed that several major cities were impacted by the internet connection disruption.

Reuters reported:

Thousands of Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI) (TIM) customers across Italy complained of internet outages and glitches on Sunday which the company blamed on problems with an international link.

Users from the northern city of Milan to the Sicilian capital Palermo reported problems, with the issue mainly focused on fixed-line internet services.

“An international interconnection problem impacting the service at national level was detected. Analyses are underway to resolve the problem,” a TIM spokesperson said.

Italy’s ANSA news agency said there was no indication that hackers caused the widespread outages.

However, Italy’s National Cybersecurity Agency warned of a “ransomware attack.”

Zero Hedge noted:

In a separate report, Reuters said that Italy’s National Cybersecurity Agency warned about a ransomware attack targeting servers worldwide.

The hacking attack sought to exploit a software vulnerability, ACN director general Roberto Baldoni told Reuters, adding it was on a massive scale.

Italy’s ANSA news agency, citing the ACN, reported that servers had been compromised in other European countries such as France and Finland as well as the United States and Canada. -RTRS

The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) was aware of the attack. The agency said:

“CISA is working with our public and private sector partners to assess the impacts of these reported incidents and providing assistance where needed.” 

After warnings from WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab about a widespread cyber attack, nationwide internet outages raise eyebrows.

Was this possibly a test run for a global cyber attack?

Who can forget Schwab’s dire warning of the next ‘pandemic?’


Recall the WEF’s Cyber Polygon?

What is the Cyber Polygon – The Future Global Attack Being Planned by the World Economic Forum?

At the 2023 Davos Summit, the WEF accelerated their fearmongering about future cyber attacks.

The globalist elite predicted a "catastrophic" cyber event within two years.

Was Italy their test run?




According to NetBlocks, internet service was mostly restored in Italy after roughly five hours.
