Belgium Police Website Hacked by SlixMe

A hacker who goes by the handle of SlixMe has hacked and defaced the official website of Belgian federal police (police.ac.be). 

The hack was announced by SilxMe on his official Twitter account in which he left his deface page along with a message on the hacked website, making fun of poor security of the site.

This is not the first time when SilxMe has defaced a high profile police website, in past he hacked and defaced the official website of  Lithuanian police department. 

However, in a pastie left by MaX0xf on Pastebin explains that he has nothing to do with this hack, according to the paste: 

MaX0xf regarding Belgium police hack: I was NOT involved in this attack and I do not know anyone called SlixMe.
I have stopped this a long time ago and I don’t hack anymore and never used to really.

At the time of publishing this article, the police website was restored and working online.
