  • Dutch authorities defend digital COVID-19 testing system despite security breach

    Authorities in the Netherlands have defended the country's digital COVID-19 testing system after a "serious" security flaw was unveiled.

    An investigation by RTL Nieuws found a major leak on the website of Testcoronanu, a Dutch company linked on the government website.

    The probe found that any online user could access Testcoronanu's records and create fake negative test certificates in the Dutch CoronaCheck app.

    Users could edit two lines of coding to automatically create a valid negative COVID-19 certificate, it said.

    RTL Nieuws also found that the leak resulted in the personal information of more than 60,000 citizens -- who had taken a coronavirus test with the company -- being compromised.
