Tesco App and Website Back Online After Cyber Incident

Tesco’s systems are reportedly back online following a cyberattack that forced it to temporarily disable its groceries app and website. The disruption lasted a week and prompted criticism from dissatisfied customers across the UK. Some customers stated that the week-long outage caused significant problems as they were self-isolating at home. Tesco’s app went down on Saturday local time, but was back up and running at midnight Sunday.
