It is not because he is President of the Republic that Emmanuel Macron is spared the risk of being hacked. Indeed, the head of state had his QR Code stolen and since Monday evening, September 20, it has been accessible on social networks. Questioned by Europe 1, this Tuesday, September 21, representatives of the Élysée Palace confirmed that it was indeed the health pass belonging to the politician. As BFMTV indicates, it is an “ethical flaw” on the part of one or more health professionals, which made this “fraudulent operation” possible.
It would therefore appear that one or more people circulated the President’s QR Code “on purpose or through negligence,” the Elysee said. For the small explanation, since September, health professionals have access to the medical data of the vaccinated French people, through the organ of centralization of the vaccine data. Our colleagues add that this file is opened in order to “make the vaccination process more efficient”. Either way, “special arrangements” will be made. The site TousAntiCovid is about to end access to the head of state’s health pass, to prevent it from being used illegally. Moreover, as RTL points out, using the precious sesame belonging to another person is an offense that can lead to a fine of 45,000 euros and three years in prison. Sanctions could also be foreseen for Internet users who have fun distributing the QR Code of the President of the Republic on social networks.
This is not the first time that this has happened to a politician since a little earlier it was Jean Castex’s health pass that had been unveiled on the Web. The Prime Minister has not been hacked, but he has shown a lack of vigilance. On September 13, he was traveling to an Ehpad located in Clamart, in the Hauts-de-Seine. At that time, the photographers had immortalized the right arm of Emmanuel Macron and in particular his phone, containing the famous QR Code. It was Mathis Hammel, research and development director of Sogeti, a cybersecurity consulting company, who had managed to access his health pass and who took the opportunity to advertise.
