Olympics hit with cyber attack
A cyber attack has been confirmed to have hit the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, according to official reports.
The attackers behind the hacking have not been identified, as an investigation is still underway by the Olympic organizers.
NBC reports the following:
“Pyeongchang Winter Olympics organizers confirmed on Sunday that the Games had come under a cyber attack during Friday’s opening ceremony.
The internet and television services were affected by the hack. The organizers wouldn’t reveal the source of the attack, which they said, did not affect critical parts of their operations, Reuters reported.
“Maintaining secure operations is our purpose,” said International Olympic Committee (IOC) spokesman Mark Adams, Reuters reported.
“We are not going to comment on the issue. It is one we are dealing with. We are making sure our systems are secure and they are secure.”
Organizing committee spokeswoman Nancy Park said Friday night that the opening ceremony went as planned despite the suspected attack. “We just had some issue with our internal system,” she said. “
