Hackers attack Nairobi’s construction approval system, causing projects to be halted

Hackers attack Nairobi’s construction approval system, causing projects to be halted

Hackers gained access to the system’s Quick Response (QR) code and effected numerous illegal approvals, prompting officials to shut it down.

Hundreds of construction sector jobs and multibillion-shilling property investments have been frozen after hackers breached the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) online application system, forcing a suspension of development plan approvals.

The QR system is part of the e-construction development plans application system used for seeking building plans and construction permits.

The system provides unique electronic identification of all approved architectural and structural plans, eliminating the need for property developers to submit hard copies of development plans for physical stamping as a mark of final approval.
