28-australian-government-domains-hacked-by-indonesian-gantengers-crewSultanHaikal of Gantengers Crew told me that Indonesians are in anger over spying row and that is why 28 sub-domains of New South Wales’s government (nsw.gov.au) have been targeted. However, the sites are not completely but partially defaced with images and messages left by the hackers.

  • Hacked by Gantengers Crew | SultanHaikal Indonesian was here!  F**K you government! why so serious? Greetz to all Indonesian hackers.

Targeted domains belong to different city councils and ports of New South Wales’s government.

Links of targeted domains along with their zone-h mirrors are available here.

Gantengers Crew was also behind the hacking and defaced of Australian National University against the spying issue revealed by NSA‘s ex-tech Edward Snowden.
