The Spanish Ministry of Labor and Social Economy (MITES) is working on restoring services after being hit by a cyberattack on Wednesday.

MITES is a ministerial department with an annual budget of almost €39 million, charged with coordinating and supervising Spain's employment, social economy, and corporate social responsibility policies.

"The Ministry of Labor and Social Economy has been affected by a computer attack," MITES' media office said earlier today.
"The technical managers of the Ministry and the National Cryptological Center are working together to determine the origin and restore normality as soon as possible."
