    Also at Dutch broadcaster NOS (in Dutch)

    The report is saying that there were 135 attacks per hour.
    Someone from security company Secutec was traveling with the trade mission and is telling about it in the report.
    He expected cyber attacks but not on this scale. He could compare things happening on his honey-pots.
