national-transport-authority-of-uae-website-hacked-by-saudi-hackers

Three Saudi hackers going with the handles of SNipEr AL BaHa, CrAzY HaCkEr and SNIPER MAKKA have collectively hacked and defaced the official website of United Arab Emirate’s (UAE) National Transport Authority (NTA) (http://www.nta.gov.ae).

The site that was hacked today is left with a deface page along with a deface message against the government of UAE and Qatar for allegedly helping Iran and Israel on current affairs. Hackers have also threatened to hack and leaked the data base of UAE’s Ministry of Interior website.

The deface page is in Arabic language and thanks to an Arabic speaking friend who did this translation for us:

  • UAE + AbuDhabi + Qatar + Dubai
  • Countries that corporate with Iran and America, So you Insult Shaykh Al-Arayfee and thought we won’t do anything to you? No my love, The first website we’ve defaced was the Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs and now we have defaced another government website (National transport authority) what do you think?And there is a ministry of interior.. Would you like us to leak the database with its information and information of the domain? hahaha! This deface is for Shaykh Al-Arayfee
