Do G1, in Sao Paulo
The National System Operator (ONS) has confirmed on the afternoon of
Monday (16) that its corporate network has hacked late on Thursday - the
gap was corrected the same day. It said there is no evidence of invasion
to the network's operational site.
G1 released earlier this afternoon that the agency had solved the
problem in a login page, but a gap remained similar in the registration
system. Shortly after the publication of the report, the page no longer
displays the error that proves the failure. "Every time they try to
[invade], we fix," said the operator.
"The operative network is reinforced, separate from the Internet and
operated via voice command," as it said, denying that the blackout that
hit 18 states on Tuesday (10) was caused by the action of hackers. ONS
quotes the Ministry of Mines and Energy, which reconfirmed Monday that
the blackout was caused by short circuit.
The ONS is responsible for coordinating and controlling the operation of
generation facilities and transmission of electricity in the National
Interconnected System (SIN), under the supervision and regulation of the
National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel).
