Lyon: 23-year-old hacker hacks Social Security and issues thousands of health passes

A young 23-year-old hacker must be brought to justice this Monday, January 3 for having hacked the Social Security site and created thousands of real-fake health passes.

According to France 3, the young Lyonnaise had very easily managed to connect to the Health Insurance site by pretending to be doctors, whose data she retrieved from Doctolib.

Pass resold between 50 and 100 euros

His lawyer, master Christophe Bruschi explains to the media the method: “Using this information, we go to another platform, called vaccine-covid. There, we pretend to be a practitioner. This platform questions the practitioner remotely. We ask him in particular if he agrees to be connected. From the moment he accepts, we are on the Social Security site and we do what we want ”.

In this case, the young woman created sanitary passes, which she then sold between 50 and 100 euros.

“I’m young, I’m 23, and it’s easy money,” she explained to the police, while ensuring that she “assumes her responsibilities”, according to her lawyer.

The young woman must be presented this Monday to an examining magistrate.

Note that the government intends to toughen up its tone against users of fake health passes. The bill transforming the health pass into a vaccination pass provides for up to five years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros for receivers and forgers of the pass.
