We have seen Moroccan Ghosts hackers defacing Israeli websites in past but this time the ghosts have gone local and hacked 100 South African websites for supporting Algerian funded Polisario Front. 

Polisario Front is a Sahrawi rebel national liberation movement working for the independence of Western Sahara from Morocco. The Polisario Front is an observer member of Socialist International. The Polisario Front is outlawed in the Morocco’s administrated part of Western Sahara. 

The group left their deface page and a message on all the hacked websites, according to the message:

Moroccan Ghosts.. Website Hacked!! Coz You Support The Algerian Front of Polisario.. Dedicated To All Moroccans..
