Government battles devious site hackers

22 July 2014, 10:33

Nairobi - The Government is at the mercy of a tricky website hacking scheme that has in recent days compromised websites of key agencies.

Just hours after the Kenya Defence Force’s (KDF) Twitter account was hacked, two other government websites have been invaded by hackers going by the name, “Anonymous Kenya.”

The Anonymous Hackers are the same hackers that attacked  the military body’s account together with that of the organization’s  Spokesperson, Major Emmanuel Chirchir.

The KDF’s Twitter account was later restored but not before the hackers had made daring posts on the same account.

One such Tweet post was "The #Kenya Ministry of Defense is under new management: #Anonymous."

Other Tweets taunted the police to catch them if they could.

Among the websites currently under the Anonymous Hackers’ control include the Ministry of Immigration and that of the Integrated Financial Management Systems.

Nothing can be accessed from the two websites with the inscription, “Pwned by ANON_0X03 AND ANONYMOUS KENYA,” appearing instead of the homepage.

The identities of the hackers, who only target government sites, is unknown.
