The hack created a massive traffic jam in Moscow.

Drivers working for Yandex Taxi, the largest taxi service in Moscow, did not have a good day on Thursday as hackers messed with the company’s app and sent dozens of cars to the same location resulting in a traffic jam that lasted up to three hours, according to Twitter reports.

The vehicles were all sent to the Kutuzovsky Prospekt, a major avenue in Moscow that is the location for the ‘Hotel Ukraina’ or Hotel Ukraine. It has not yet become clear whether the hack was a protest in favor of Ukraine or whether other reasons were behind it.
