VACCINE APPOINTMENT REGISTRATION SITE HIT BY CYBER ATTACK

 

The government’s website for booking Covid vaccination appointments was hit by a distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack on Friday, leaving people unable to set up appointments, a deputy leader of the operative board responsible for handling the pandemic said. Work is under way to get the system back online, Lieutenant Colonel Róbert Kiss told an online press briefing, adding that the public would be informed when the site is back up. The attack, which is believed to have been carried out by human hackers, also affected the system for requesting drug prescriptions, but this part of the site is now back online, Kiss said. Similar attacks have been seen in other countries, too, he added.
