Hacker Shuts Down Copenhagen’s Public City Bikes System

Catalin Cimpanu reports:

An unidentified hacker has breached Bycyklen —Copenhagen’s city bikes network— and deleted the organization’s entire database, disabling the public’s access to bicycles over the weekend.

The hack took place on the night between Friday, May 4, and Saturday, May 5, the organization said on its website.

Bycyklen described the hack as “rather primitive,” alluding it may have been carried out “by a person with a great deal of knowledge of its IT infrastructure.”
