CANADA SOCCER PLAYERS SUFFER DATA HACK

CANADA SOCCER PLAYERS SUFFER DATA HACK

Canada soccer female players join the list of athletes that have their medical records hacked. Hackers have been releasing confidential information of Rio Olympians to the public as they get hold of them.


The world anti-doping agency (WADA) is pointing fingers at Russian cyber espionage as the group behind the attacks. Top stars have had their personal records opened. Rafael Nadal, Justin Rose, Mo Farah and others suffered the same fate.

Sophie Schmidt, Rhian Wilkinson, Melissa Tancredi, and Christine Sinclair are the four Canadian players affected so far by the data hack. The four represented their countries at the Summer Olympics games. None of them used Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE). However, the leaked documents reveal that they had exemptions for Salbutamol with January 2009 as the expiry date. The drug is used to open airways in the lungs.

Britain’s Rose won the first gold medal for his country in over a century, while Farah retained the 5000 and 10000 metres medals. Nadal-Marc Lopez partnership won gold in the Olympic men’s doubles in Rio. The hackers gained control into the anti-doping administration and management system (ADAMS) named as APT28 and Fancy Bears. The hacked documents were uploaded to fancybear.net revealing Farah’s details.

This means that Chelsea will have to search for a new manager soon as there are only a few months remaining before the season finalizes and Guus Hiddink has recently stated that Chelsea should do this in a quick manner and transparent as well.

 

“I am in favor. But it’s a personal opinion that when things are done you make it transparent. You’ve heard more than I because that’s your job, you have to search around where the rumors are. That’s not my job. I’m just there to prepare for the next game. I’m not involved in this so that’s all you can get from me on this issue. Of course this club is searching now and experienced managers they like and there are a lot. It’s up to them, to make up their mind and make the decisions.” Chelsea’s Guus Hiddink said.
