Theofanidis urged clients not to gather on the morning of the first day of pension payments and distribute their time to avoid unnecessary stress.

All forces are working to establish the facts of the cyber attack on the Bulgarian Post and restore services to the community,” said the executive director.

He did not comment on who was behind the attack, but said he trusted our experts.

“I think that this hack was chosen as the time to cause maximum tension in society – right next to Easter payouts, in one of the most vulnerable groups – pensioners. It dawned on me that the response from the Bulgarian Post could have been better, but in the end there was some delay,” Feofanidis said.
