A group of hackers going with the handle of Indonesian Cyber Freedom has hacked and defaced a sub-domain of the United Nations website, just few hours ago.
The targeted sub-domain belongs to GEF Small Grants Programme of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Hackers left a deface page along with a message on the hacked UNDP domain. The main page of the site was replaced by hackers with one of their own using a php shell.
The reason for targeting the site wasn’t mentioned anywhere. However, one of the hacker from the group told HackRead the reason is simple.. “poor site security.”
“Gotcha ! you got hacked by Indonesian cyber freedom,” according to the message.
Full preview of the deface page is available below:
