Anti-Vaxxer Hijacks QR Codes at COVID-19 Check-In Sites | Threatpost – Austraila

Quick-response (QR) codes used by a COVID-19 contact-tracing program were hijacked by a man who simply slapped up scam QR codes on top to redirect users to an anti-vaccination website, according to local police.

He now faces two counts of “obstructing operations carried out relative to COVID-19 under the Emergency Management Act,” the South Australia Police said in a statement announcing the arrest. His arrest may just be a drop in the bucket: Reports of other anti-vax campaigners doing the same thing abound.
