Paris: French President, Francois Hollande and German Chancellor, Angela Merkel said “The door remains open for discussions,” after a meeting held following Greek voters’ rejection of creditors’ bailout terms in a referendum Sunday.

“There is no longer enough time, and there is an urgency, for Greece, as well as for Europe,” said Francois Hollande at the press conference in the Elysee, a media portal reported.

For the French president, the door remains open for discussions, so “it is time for the government of Tsipras to make serious and credible proposals to show the willingness of staying in the Eurozone.”



Accepting the result of Greece’s referendum, German Chancellor, Angela Merkel said Europe is now waiting for the “precise” proposals of Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras that will bring Greece prosperity.

Pointing out the “generosity” of the last proposal proposed to Greece, Merkel called on each country of the European Union to “fulfill its own responsibility” and to show solidarity.

Despite the unanimous rejection of the conditions of bailout programme by the Greeks, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said that it will come to Greece’s aid when called.

“The IMF has taken note of yesterday’s referendum held in Greece,” IMF Managing Director, Christine Lagarde said in a statement Monday. “We are monitoring the situation closely and stand ready to assist Greece if requested to do so.”

The “No” result from Sunday’s referendum in Greece already provoked worries in the financial markets around the world, especially in Europe, with all major stock markets sliding at the end of the trading day.

Euclid Tsakalotos has been appointed as the new Finance Minister, following Yanis Varoufakis’s resignation following the referendum.

Till date, Greece has 21.2 billion euros in outstanding obligations to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Failing to make a repayment of about 1.5 billion euros to the IMF on June 30, Greece became the first advanced economy default on IMF debt. (IANS)

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic, as millions of employees working from home became a prime target for cybercriminals. A large majority (83 per cent) of IT teams in India said the number of phishing emails targeting their employees increased during 2020, according to a report by UK-based cybersecurity firm Sophos on Monday.

"It can be tempting for organisations to see phishing attacks as a relatively low-level threat, but that underestimates their power. Phishing is often the first step in a complex, multi-stage attack. According to Sophos Rapid Response, attackers frequently use phishing emails to trick users into installing malware or sharing credentials that provide access to the corporate network," Sophos' Principal Research Scientist, Chester Wisniewski said in a statement. The findings also reveal that there is a lack of common understanding about the definition of phishing. For instance, 67 per cent of IT teams in India associate phishing with emails that falsely claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and which are usually combined with a threat or request for information.
