The official website of Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation (PBS) has been hacked and defaced by a hacker going with the handle of gOx.

The website of PBC was hacked on 1st November, left with a deface page along with a Verse of Bible. The deface message was expressed in following words:

  • John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son as a sacrifice for it. God loves you! You are special to Him. God doesn’t love you because you are a good person or do everything right. He loves you because He is love. Love is not something God does; it is something He is. It is His nature.

The identity and reason for hacking the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation website remains unclear. The reason for leaving Bible verses is also unclear. However, the hacker did not left any hate or violent message.
