Maldives Association of travel agents and tour operators website has been effected with cyber attacks last night - it was found with local language text images of board members and other images.
During a time when Maldives Tourism needs a lot of attention and focus to the inbound numbers also a time when we need resume our reputation among local companies, NGOs and entities, we find this act cowardly and irresponsible. It also shows MATATO is making an impact towards our objective and in general within the industry.
While, MATATO remains even stronger, we would like to confirm that Maldives Police Service and relevant authorities are working to find out the responsible parties.
Also in this opportunity we wish to inform we will have a more friendly, secure and better website ready in the coming few days.
