Greece's national postal service, ELTA, said it is in the process of fully restoring its systems following a ransomware attack that took place on Sunday night. 

ELTA – also known as the Hellenic Post – said in a statement on Thursday that the "complete restoration of the company's systems is evolving according to its plan."

"From today, Thursday 24 March, ELTA branches will now provide financial services, including the collection of bills, the sending of simple mail, small packages and the sale of philatelic products," the organization said. 

"In addition, ELTA Courier will serve the shipment of parcels abroad. ELTA also informs the public that from next Monday, March 28, pension payments will be paid throughout the country, based on their estimated payment times. ELTA will continue to report responsibly on the progress of the full rehabilitation plan and related work."
