In an update originally reported by ZDNet, the Brazilian Superior Electoral Court (STJ) has managed to resume operations after a cyberattack took down their systems for more than two weeks. The attack, which started on November 3rd, required all STJ systems to be taken offline for about 26 hours, during which the federal police gathered evidence. From there, the courts were forced to operate with limited functionality until November 20th, while a team of over 50 IT professionals rebuilt the network. During that time, court cases had to be postponed. As a result of lessons learned during this incident, cybersecurity preparations will be focused on more heavily at the STJ.
