The central bank of Lesotho in Southern Africa is currently experiencing severe outages due to a cyberattack that was discovered earlier this week. The bank has confirmed that several systems have been affected by the recent incident. The bank released multiple statements acknowledging the cybersecurity breach and the efforts being made to restore the systems. As a result of the attack, the National Payments System has been down, affecting inter-bank transactions in the country. The bank has assured the public that no financial loss has occurred, but some payments may be delayed while the systems are being restored. There are concerns about the potential impact on the exchange rate as the country’s currency is pegged to South Africa’s rand. This incident comes after other high-profile cyberattacks in South Africa earlier this year. The situation is being closely monitored as technical teams work to resolve the issue.
