Saturday night DDoS attack on CoronaCheck system resolved
There have been no more DDoS cyberattacks on the CoronaCheck app server, a spokesperson from the Ministry of Health stated on Sunday afternoon. Creating a QR code should not be a problem anymore.
The servers had to deal with “severe” cyberattacks on Saturday evening due to which many people were not able to create a QR code in the CoronaCheck app. Additionally, many people were using the app at the same leading to a sever overload.
Since Saturday, it has been necessary to show a QR code to gain entry to catering or cultural establishments.
It has not been determined who is behind the attack, according to the spokesperson. When a DDoS attack occurs, an attempt is made to make a website, server or service in accessible. The computer system is viewed so many times through a network or hacked device that it crashes.
