Fake QR codes in Moscow is gaining momentum
From June 28, restrictions for a number of establishments came into force in Moscow, requiring visitors to have a special QR code about vaccination against coronavirus.
But against this background, a scheme for forging such codes appeared. Moreover, it was known in advance about the restrictions being introduced, and apparently it turned out to be enough time to develop such schemes. “Gosuslug”, as well as fake QR codes are created using the appropriate generators.
When scanning a fake QR code, the device does not open the original site, but a fake one. Employees of establishments may not notice the difference and consider the QR code to be real.
But given that the scheme is already known, it is enough for employees of establishments to carefully compare the domain of the original site “Gosuslug” with the one to which the scanned QR code was transferred.
