HA NOI  (VNS) — Users remain blocked from the websites of Vietnamese newspapers with platforms hosted by the Vietnam Communications Corporation (VCCorp) since October 13.

The newspapers include Thoi bao Kinh te Viet Nam (Vietnam Economic Times) at , Nguoi Lao Dong (Labourers) at and Gia Dinh Xa Hoi (Family and Society). Other company websites have the same issues.

Nguyen The Tan, deputy general director of VCCorp, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the breakdown of its Data Center system has resulted in the websites' inaccessibility.

He said the company was prioritising the repair of the newspaper websites to enable them to re-open.

Asked about the reasons for the breakdown, Tan said the company needed to check further and verify, although it specified errors in the Data Center system. He added that it was possible the sites were hacked. — VNS
