The unknown perpetrators hacked the accounts of the users in order to gain access to the supercomputers. Fortunately, our high-performance computer was not affected, but JURECA, JUWELS and JUDAC at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Hawk at the Stuttgart High Performance Computing Centre and the supercomputers at the Leibzig Computing Centre (LRZ), for example, fell victim to the attack.

To ensure that computations finish quickly, the work to be done is divided among different processes in parallel. Depending on the use case, the processes must exchange their intermediate results with other processes at program runtime.
