    User data in the ConectSUS app that provides Brazilians with vaccination certificates has disappeared. The government called on the Institutional Security Office (GSI) and the Federal Police (PF) to investigate the hacker attacks suffered on the folder page and on the ConnectSUS, Coronavirus Panel and DataSUS platforms.

    According to the statement released by the Ministry, the folder suffered ”an incident” and the ”Department of Informatics of the SUS (Datasus) is working with maximum agility to reestablish the platforms”.

    Minister Marcelo Queiroga stated that those responsible for the attacks would be “exemplarily punished” and that the ministry worked with “total commitment” to solve the problem.

    “Today, the total effort is for this data to be available as soon as possible,” Queiroga told GloboNews. “It is being investigated [the attack], and as soon as someone is guilty, he will be exemplarily punished.”

    In the early hours of Friday, the folder’s website and systems such as ConnectSUS and e-SUS Notifica were targets of cyber attacks. When accessing the platforms, users encountered a message stating that the data had been copied and deleted.

    In several cities, the ConnectSUS application is used by Brazilians to prove their vaccination status.

    The “LAPSUS$ group” claimed responsibility for the attacks. In the message left by hackers on the ministry’s website there was a note announcing the possibility of rescuing the deleted data. Typically, hackers demand ransom payments in cryptocurrencies to make tracking difficult.

    “The Ministry of Health announces that at dawn this Friday (10) it suffered an incident that temporarily compromised some systems in the folder, such as e-SUS Notifica, Information System of the National Immunization Program (SI-PNI), ConectaSUS and features such as the issuance of the Covid-19 National Vaccination Certificate and the National Digital Vaccination Card, which are currently unavailable.

    “The Institutional Security Office (GSI) and the Federal Police have already been called upon by the ministry to support investigations. The SUS IT Department (Datasus) is working with maximum agility to reestablish the platforms.”

    The hack which deleted vaccination information coincided with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro last week opposing vaccine passports. Bolsonaro told the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday that his government was against health passports.

    Bolsonaro hounded by vaccine pushers after linking jabs to AIDS

    On Monday, UK PM Boris Johnson told Bolsonaro at the start of a bilateral meeting with the media present, that everyone should get the AstraZeneca jab. Johnson then turned to Bolsonaro: “I’ve had it twice.” The Brazilian leader pointed at himself and said he has “not yet” had the jab.

    Bolsonaro, who is not vaccinated, has repeatedly questioned the efficacy of the pharmaceutical products against the Coronavirus.

    The Brazilian Supreme Court has meanwhile been investigating Bolsonaro because he linked Covid-19 vaccines to AIDS. In comments on an October 24 Facebook livestream, the Brazilian leader underscored reports “suggesting that people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 are developing Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) much faster than expected,” the BBC reported.

    On Friday, Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes ruled Bolsonaro “used the modus operandi of mass dissemination schemes in social networks,” and Moraes immediately ordered Brazil’s chief prosecutor to open an investigation.

    Published research support Bolsonaro’s concern

    A study published in the Lancet comparing the vaccinated and unvaccinated in Sweden, conducted among 1,6 million individuals over nine months, showed that the repeatedly vaccinated had suffered “immune erosion” or “acquired immune deficiency” resulting in chronic illness.

    Bolsonaro’s comment is also supported by research published in the New England Journal of Medicine showing that autoimmune response to the injected Coronavirus spike protein may last indefinitely: “Ab2 antibodies binding to the original receptor on normal cells therefore have the potential to mediate profound effects on the cell that could result in pathologic changes, particularly in the long term — long after the original antigen itself has disappeared.”

    An uncontrolled autoimmune response produces anti-idiotype antibodies or Ab2s that continue to damage jab recipients, according to science reporter Alex Berenson. “Our immune systems produce these antibodies in response to both vaccination and natural infection with Covid,” said Berenson. “However – though the researchers do not say so explicitly, possibly because doing so would be politically untenable – spike protein antibody levels are much higher following vaccination than infection. Thus the downstream response to vaccination may be more severe.”

    An AIDS-like immune-destroying syndrome called VAIDS (Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is initiated following the first round of injections and subsequent “booster” shots will accelerate this process of “immune erosion”.
