Moscow’s First Cable Car Shuts Down After Opening in Suspected Cyberattack

Nov 29, 2018 1:19 pm

A cyberattack forced all passengers to disembark the cable car only two hours after it opened.

One day after opening to the general public, Moscow’s highly touted first-ever cable car was forced to shut down after a reported cyberattack.

City authorities promised to turn a long drive to and from Luzhniki Stadium into a five-minute picturesque glide when the cable car opened to much fanfare on Tuesday. Moreover, all rides were declared to be free in the shuttle’s first month of operations.

A video on the Rossiiskaya Gazeta government daily’s website showed a police officer telling people waiting in line that the cable car would not reopen “for technical reasons.”
