As backups were stored on the same servers, all of the MFK data has been destroyed.
The MFK, set up in 2014, is a government agency engaged in obtaining EU subsidies directly from the European Structural and Investment Funds. It monitors EU tender applications and helps applicants to file bids.
It is the MFK’s task to inform the public administration, local government, corporate and civil sectors about available resources and the terms of the applications. The MFK operates a Hungarian-language website about EU structural fund tenders.
Technical director Dénes Debreczeny said North Korean hackers had attacked the servers.
The Foreign Affairs and Trade Ministry, which runs the MFK, did not respond to requests for information.
