The premier insisted Monday he’s confident that police will get to the bottom of it.

“Cybersecurity is so important,” Ford added. “(Hackers are) getting more technical, more sophisticated every single day.”

Individuals complained that they received spam texts of a financial nature after booking appointments or downloading their vaccine passport.

Solicitor General Sylvia Jones said officials are investigating the complaints but are unaware of anyone being defrauded.

“We have confidence in the booking system, that there are no concerns,” Jones said. “We will continue to investigate all issues as we hear from local individuals.”
