The theft would not have occurred in Italy: according to what is learned, from the first investigations carried out, there were no cyber attacks on Sogei, the Information technology company of the Ministry of Economy which provides the codes for Italy to generate green certificates. The attack could therefore have targeted a counterpart in another European country. At the moment, however, the keys that have been stolen have been canceled and, consequently, all the green passes generated with those codes have been invalidated.
