Strætó Was Hit by Cyber-Attack

Strætó, the Iceland Public Bus Network, came under attack from hackers yesterday, RÚV reports. The company‘s web servers were hacked but the app was not tampered with.

Jóhannes Rúnarsson, the CEO of Strætó, said to RÚV that the incident had been reported to the Data Protection Authority, the Police and the Computer Emergency Response Team of Iceland. He added that the attack could have resulted in data leakage, but data hostage was unlikely. The attack is not believed to be connected to the log4j vulnerability.

According to RÚV, measures have been taken to prevent further data leakage and experts are currently analysing the situation. However, Strætó warns against sharing credit card info via e-mail with potential scammers.
