Hartsfield-Jackson International has taken down the wi-fi at the world’s busiest airport after a cyber attack on the city of Atlanta, and its website is spotty.
The Atlanta airport’s website said after the cyber attack that security wait times and flight information may not be accurate, advising passengers to check with their airline for information.
