Presidential candidate’s website reportedly hacked

The website of presidential candidate Zuzana Martináková was reportedly hacked on Tuesday, March 10.

The website of presidential candidate Zuzana Martináková was reportedly hacked on Tuesday, March 10.

At around 16.00, a false statement declaring that Martináková was cancelling her presidential bid was published, the TASR newswire was told later in the day, it reported.

“I have pursued my candidacy with maximum earnestness, and I’m in third place in terms of voter support at the moment, which I view as an excellent starting point for an even greater success,” Martináková said. “My schedule up until the election is full of meetings with people, at which I seek their support, she added.

The Free Forum party, of which Martináková is the chair, is currently analysing the hacking attack and says it is likely to file a criminal complaint. “My voter support in the last three surveys has gone up considerably, and apparently someone is worried. I’m wondering who might want to discredit my candidacy,” she said. TASR
