INCIDENT

An online attack on the railway company Transdev has temporarily led to restrictions on the websites of the Nordwestbahn and the Rhein-Ruhr-Bahn on Monday and Tuesday.

The attackers had directed a spam wave at forms on the Nordwestbahn page on Monday morning, Transdev announced on Tuesday on request. The measures undertaken were gradually reduced the next day. "The Rhein-Ruhr-Bahn, the website is accessible again without problems. Only on the Nordwestbahn website, increased protective measures are currently still ongoing, which are still being readjusted," it was said.
