Panda Security website hacked by Anonymous, vows to fight against LulzSec arrests

After the arrest of their top most members, Anonymous promised to take revenge in one of their announcement via twitter and the very next day Anonymous hacked famous Panda Security website, leaving behind a deface message.

On the deface page,  Anonymous scoffed the former LulzSec leader Sabu aka Hector Xavier Monsegur for playing double game and helping FBI in taking down the LulzSec hackers, and promised to take revenge and keeping the  hactivist campaign regardless of the setback.

Deface Message:

“Yeah yeah, we know, Sabu snitched on us. As usually happens FBI menaced him to take his sons away. We understand, but we were your family too. (Remember what you liked to say?),” reads a note posted to the site. “It’s sad and we can’t imagine how it feels having to look at the mirror each morning and see there the guy who shopped their friends to police.” 

However, in an email statement Panda Security spokeswoman  said ”the hackers had obtained access to a Panda Security webserver that was hosted outside of Panda’s internal network. This server was used only for marketing campaigns and to host company blogs, it said. “Neither the main website www.pandasecurity.com nor www.cloudantivirus.com were affected in the attack,” the statement said.

“The attack did not breach Panda Security’s internal network and neither source code, update servers nor customer data was accessed. The only information accessed was related to marketing campaigns such as landing pages and some obsolete credentials, including supposed credentials for employees that have not been working at Panda for over five years,” the company said.
