Protesting against Israel by hacking the UN website!?
Interesting, I think I’m following the logic here! Tomorrow I will protest animal cruelty by buying a BIG bucket of KFC chicken! (Don’t push me, I’m near the edge - it was like 33 degrees today, I might take this protest to the next level and insist on ‘all white meat’ that way a few extra birds go down to fill my 20 piece quota).
The official website of the United Nations appeared to have been hacked on Sunday and briefly displayed a message protesting US and Israeli policies in the Middle East.
The section of the site reserved to statements by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon showed a message, repeated several times, that read: “Hacked By kerem125 M0sted and Gsy That is CyberProtest Hey Ysrail and Usa dont kill children and other people Peace for ever No war.”
The message also appeared on other web pages that usually display quotes and speeches from the secretary general. The pirate message disappeared from the UN website, www.un.org, at about 9:15 am (1315 GMT). “We are very concerned that this happened and we are investigating,”said UN spokesman Alex Cerniglia. “We will make security changes to prevent this from happening again,” he said. Previous attacks attributed to the hackers found on other websites suggested that at least one of them was Turkish. [...]
Goes on to then briefly state that the hack was in protest to the Lebanon war, I take it they mean Israel’s defensive actions regarding Hezbollah last summer.
I’m left wondering only one thing really, do I still get to keep the bucket of chicken!?
