An Indonesian defacer going with the handle of ‘Index Php’ had hacked and defaced 3 official sub-domains of European Union (EU) on 21st November, 2013.

Targeted domains were sub-domains of European Union (EU), belonging to EU’s E-voting and polls, official Blog of the European Commission and EU’s web and forum tools.

All 3 domains were left with a deface page along with a message, expressed in following message:

It is unclear why the sites were attacked by Indonesian hacker. However, Indonesian hackers are in news for targeting Australian government domains amid spying row with Jakarta.
