<nettime> E-ticket, Hungary


A teenager discovered that the brand new website of the public transit authority in Budapest would allow you to edit the price you paid for your tickets, so that purchasers could give themselves massive discounts on their travel, and when he told the authority about it, they had him arrested and issued a press-release boasting about it.

Ein 18-jähriger Schüler aus Ungarn hat eine Schwachstelle im E-Ticketing-System der Nahverkehrsbetriebe in der ungarischen Hauptstadt Budapest gefunden und wurde kurz nach Meldung der Probleme an das Unternehmen festgenommen. Das System wird von T-Systems Magyar betrieben. Das Unternehmen gehört zum ungarischen Telekommunikationsanbieter Magyar Telekom (a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom).
