Game abandoned: Hackers attack Brazilian health authorities

The two superstars Lionel Messi and Neymar talk during the game interruption ordered by the Brazilian health department on September 5, 2021. A little later, the game between Brazil and Argentina was officially canceled.

After the scandal broke off after the health department intervened in the World Cup qualifying game between Brazil and Argentina, the Anvisa authority’s website fell victim to a hacker attack.

Sao Paulo. The farce about the duel between Brazil and Argentina goes into the next round. After the “Superclasico” in the World Cup qualification was canceled last Sunday (September 5th) after intervention by the Brazilian health authority (Anvisa), hackers have now attacked the authority’s website!

Hacker attack related to the demolition of Brazil against Argentina?

The unknown attackers ensured that the Anvisa website read on a black background for around an hour and a half: “We did not comply with the quarantine to be on your servers. Are you going to kick us out now? ”In addition, the Argentine flag could be seen. It is not clear whether this is an act of revenge by Argentine football fans. The Brazilian health authority called on the Brazilian security authorities “to take appropriate steps”.

The game in Sao Paolo on Sunday was just five minutes old when officials stepped onto the lawn and prevented four Argentine players from continuing to play. These were the English Premier League players Emiliano Martínez (29) and Emiliano Buendía (24) from Aston Villa and Giovanni Lo Celso (25) and Cristian Romero (23, both Tottenham Hotspur). The accusation: You did not adhere to the planned 14-day quarantine after a stay in England.

From the hustle and bustle, the Argentine team disappeared into the dressing room and never returned to the field, whereupon the game was officially canceled an hour later.

But even without the hacker attack, the weekend’s scandalous game is already a case for the disciplinary committee of the world football association FIFA, which requested statements from the South American football association CONMEBOL and the two national associations CBF (Brazil) and AFA (Argentina).
