Julian Assange's arrest at the end of last week by British officials who finally snatched him at the London embassy in Ecuador where he'd been living for years did not, in turns out, put the matter to rest for Ecuadorian officials.
Patricio Real, the county's deputy minister for information and communication technologies, told Agence France Presse in an interview that Assange's controversial arrest prompted a massive wave of cyberattacks against the country. They added up to a whopping 40 million attacks and "principally come from the United States, Brazil, Holland, Germany, Romania, France, Austria and the United Kingdom," as well as from South America.
