Online sales for the Melbourne Film Festival’s showing of the “Ten Conditions of Love” have been halted due to an attack on the website ticketing system by Chinese hackers. According to AFP:
Chinese hackers crashed the website of Australia’s biggest film festival, organisers said on Saturday, escalating tensions over a visit here by the exiled leader of the Uighur minority.
Online bookings for the Melbourne International Film Festival had to be shut down after the site was bombarded with phony purchases which resulted in the entire program being sold out, said festival spokeswoman Asha Holmes.
