The information was later confirmed by the NBÚ, whose spokesperson Peter Habara said that they had identified “a harmful activity” on the website, as reported by the TASR newswire.

The NBÚ used its new power granted by the amendment to the law on cyber security, which was adopted by the parliament at the end of last week. It should allow the authority to stop the circulation of malicious content on the internet.
