The European Medicines Agency (EMA) publishes a fourth update regarding the cyberattack she suffered in December. Always so laconic in its communication, the AEM confirms leaks on the internet of third-party documents relating to vaccines against Covid-19.
As a reminder, the AEM is in charge of the scientific assessment of vaccines against Covid-19 for the European Union and their marketing authorization. She does not go into details regarding the exfiltrated documents.
Following the media coverage of the cyberattack, the German biotechnology company BioNTech confirmed illegal access to documents stored on an AEM server and related to its BNT162b2 vaccine against Covid-19. It is manufactured and distributed by the American pharmaceutical group Pfizer.
Earlier this week, the Italian cybersecurity company Yarix said (Bloomberg) discovering pirated AEM documents on the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on the Dark Web. They relate to vaccine production, validation and marketing information. The Italian authorities have been alerted.
What feed conspiracy theories …
There would be a clear will to harm judging by a title on a clandestine forum: ” Incredible fraud! The evil Pfffizer! Fake vaccines! “Forum administrators have removed the post which was dated December 30, 2020.
The American biotechnology company Moderna had also confirmed illegal access to documents exchanged with the AEM as part of discussions before the submission of its candidate vaccine mRNA-1273 against Covid-19.
