Some officials from the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics have claimed that a hacking attack has taken place involving the press center, websites, TV and internet access.
It was suggested that Russia, who was prevented from participating in the Winter Olympics as a country, was responsible for the attacks.
According to The Guardian, the location of the attack on the game is still unclear, but the rumor is that Russia’s finger is a serious punishment for sportsmen following a major doping scandal.
Pyeongchang 2018 spokesman Sung Baik said in a statement that he was avoiding saying the country behind the attack and that it was a cyber attack and that the servers were updated. Baik stated that the cause of the problem was hidden in them. According to the report, the official stated that they would not disclose the source and would not comment on the matter.
Mark Adams, communications chief of the International Olympic Committee, said in a statement to the newspaper that no information about the alleged cheerleading would be disclosed to the public at this time, but a final report would be shared. Adams was asked whether the city where the Olympics was held was close to 80 kilometers from the border with North Korea and that Korea was responsible for this attack. Reuters reported that Russia did not accept any cyber attack. “Of course, no evidence will be presented to the world,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said. used expressions.
The attack, on the other hand, does not appear to be a serious offense, and the Olympics are similarly a constant target. According to the Times newspaper, hackers, who seem to have national state support, attacked computer systems during the week. However, since the games of Sochi 2014, authorities are taking strict measures against hackers.
