In an email conversation, the hackers explained that this is their first ever attack on Vietnamese government websites and the attack will continue until the Vietnam government doesn’t stop supporting the Polisario Front, which is a Sahrawi rebel national liberation movement working for ending Moroccan hold of Western Sahara. 

The hackers left a very unique hand written and signature deface page along with a message, according to which: 

Dear Government of Vietnam,

We are not here to ask you why and what you gonna win by supporting Polisario front but to tell you that this is our first attack on your government websites and be sure, take it as a challenge  we won’t stop until we see the change.
