Hackers and the Olympics

This is truly the perfect paradise for “pacifists” to roll around like pigs. Insecure computers? It\’s like finding a vein of gold. According to security experts, the number of attacks is increasing by a million a day.
The first attack was recorded in Pyeongchang during the opening ceremony. Many hackers started tinkering with everything related to it and tried to destroy all facilities. These were mostly so-called DDoS attacks. In the simplest explanation, this is based on the principle of congestion: a DDoS attack simply tries to connect hundreds of thousands of computers to a single server , which cannot keep up. It then crashes and quits because of this congestion. Those who want to watch are unavailable until the servers are fixed. This has been confirmed by representatives of the International Olympic Committee, who have also confirmed this failed attempt. After all, as Mohamad Amin Hasbini, security analyst at Kaspersky Lab,has reported, hackers have been and will continue to be attracted to such events.
