The online hacktivists from Lulz Security Peru have hacked and defaced the official website of Peruvian President and Peruvian National Police. 

The website of Peruvian President was hacked on 17th November while Peruvian National Police site was hacked yesterday 19th November 2013. 

Lulz Security Peru left two different deface pages along with messages on both hacked websites in Spanish language. Hackers criticized government for being useless for the people of Peru and bashed national police for allegedly taking money in bribe cases.

The message on Peruvian President website was expressed in following words: 

  • We’ve attacked [the presidency’s website] because the country is run by people ‘with no brain’ who only seek power and don’t care about the people of this country, only their personal interests. We hope they realize that they’re causing damage to the country. We don’t like corruption.

The message on hacked Peruvian National Police website was expressed in following words:

  • Welcome to the new page of the National Police of Peru (a.k.a. the Delinquent Police of Peru). You are useless and corrupt police. Shame on you for taking money from innocent people.
