The site was hacked just few minutes ago, where the home page was left with a deface page along with a message. The page shows that site was defaced for an ongoing Sahara desert dispute between Morocco and Nigeria. While the deface message was expressed in following words: 

  • Moroccan Ghosts, The Sahara is Moroccan! 

One of the hacker from Moroccan Ghost told us that they will keep on attacking every country’s cyber space which plans to takeover the Sahara.
