Indonesia says a cyberattack has compromised its data center but it won't pay the $8 million ransom

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Indonesia's national data center has been compromised by a hacking group asking for a $8 million ransom that the government won't pay, authorities said Monday.

The cyberattack has disrupted services of more than 200 government agencies at both the national and regional levels since June 20, said Samuel Abrijani Pangerapan, the director general of informatics applications with the Communications and Informatics Ministry.

Some government services have returned - immigration services at airports and elsewhere are now functional - but efforts continue at restoring other services such as investment licensing, Pangerapan told reporters.
