Bet9ja is well-known in Nigeria for being one of the top betting operators in the country. It has had great success breaking into the African and global betting industries in recent years. Yet, like many major online companies around the world, the bigger they get, the more they become the target of cybercriminals.
Bet9ja Becomes a Victim of Cyber Crime
Such has recently been the case for Bet9ja, which has reported a major cyberattack on their betting platform. The attack apparently restricted their customers from gaining access.
Bet9ja has since released a statement assuring its customers that the matter is of extreme concern. Their IT department and various additional investigating bodies are working around the clock to resolve the issue and discover its source.
They have also assured their customers that their money and accounts are not in danger and offered their sincere apologies for the inconvenience. They have promised to post regular updates on their progress. They have also promised to offer a range of special new promotions once they are back online.
The Cyber Threat
Cyberattacks have fast become a global issue in recent years. Usually, they target government and defense agencies and big-tech companies. However, more and more everyday online companies and businesses are also increasingly becoming vulnerable, requiring ever greater online security.
