egyptian-ministry-websites-hacked-anonymous-jordan

An Anonymous hacker going with the handle of Anonymous Jordan has hacked and defaced eight (8) Egyptian Ministry websites against the taking down of Muslim Brotherhood’s government few days ago.

The targeted websites belong to different high profile government ministries and departments, such as the website of Ministry of Electricity & Energy (www.nrea.gov.eg) Egyptian Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (www.mopic.gov.eg), Presidency of the Council of Minister’s slums Development Fund (www.isdf.gov.eg), Ministry of Supreme Council of Culture (www.scp.gov.eg), Egyptian Ministry of Culture (www.ecm.gov.eg) & (www.egyptiancultureministry.gov.eg), Ministry of Port and Shipping’s Red Sea Ports Authority (www.rspa.gov.eg) and website of National Council for the Welfare of the families of martyrs and invalids Revolution (www.25jan.gov.eg).

The sites were hacked on 5th July and left with Anonymous official logo, a deface along and a message in Arabic language asking people of Egypt what they are really up to and what do they want? No Mubarak and now no Murso, so what else? The deface message was expressed in following words:

  • This website was hacked, because we want to pass a message to the Egyptian people” what do u want? u said u didn’t want Mubarak so he left. Your country got into a critical situation, u said u wanted a president, and after the elections, You said Mursi is your president, and Mursi did all he could, its enough that he was an Islamic ruler, (changed the filth that was in Egypt, tourists in Sharm al Sheikh and prostitution etc, bottom line is that I hope my message got to those who don’t want Mursi, cause you cant find a ruler like him in all Egypt. Important Note: what caught my attention is that Egypt will be divided in three countries, and u’ll see everything going to be a game I swear.
