IBM warns that the coronavirus vaccine transportation system has been targeted by hackers
South Korea Radio International reported on December 4 that International Business Machines (IBM) warned on the 3rd local time that in response to the characteristics of low-temperature transportation of the coronavirus vaccine, there have been a series of cases of attempted hacking by false orders in recent days.
IBM said through its official website that the cryogenic transportation system of vaccines has been targeted for fraud. IBM’s Global Threat Intelligence Group said it had confirmed that hackers “falsely claimed that they were an ultra-low temperature cold storage enterprise in China” in September this year and falsely ordered from institutions responsible for cryogenic transportation systems and relevant enterprises. Hackers try to add draft contract attachments with malware to emails to hack.
IBM said that the hacker targets at least six countries and regions, including Germany, Italy, South Korea, the Czech Republic, the European Union and Taiwan, China, and other organizations and groups related to low-temperature transportation systems.
