The online hacktivist group ‘Anonymous Honduras‘ has hacked and defaced 6 high profile Honduras government ministries websites against the alleged fraud in country’s presidential elections.

Hacked websites belong to Interpol Honduras, two websites of National Police of Honduras, Superintendent of Public Alliance, Honduras, Ministry of Culture and Zolitur Island under Ministry of Tourism.

Anonymous left a deface page along with a message on all hacked websites against alleged rigging and fraud in 2013 during country’s Vice Presidential Election. The hackers urge the people not to vote until the whole electoral system is improved. According to the deface message:

  •  “We are Anonymous! From past couple of day we have been spreading news about electoral fraud in the election. Where , with the help of citizens, collect all the evidence, in order to prove fraud in the election procedures and results. So this day we appeal to all to join in and protest but as a collective we have no commitments with any political party to consider all of the same. We urge that democracy and true decision of the people we respect.”

Anonymous later urged people to come out and protests against the fraud in these election or then it will be too late. The deface message adds that:

  •  “Let’s go out to the streets peacefully and not compare ourselves , or we challenge oppression , remember that they have the guns and money , we only our voice, our indignation and our desire for freedom . If you are in protest in front of foreign embassies. If we can wake up now , there will be a possible time.”
