Saudi hackers from Team Bad Dream have hacked and defaced the official website of  U.S. Army Picatinny Arsenal earlier today. 

Hackers who go with the handles of TrYaG Al Arab, 1337kSa and Faisal Al Hamzi left a message for the U.S. Army along with a deface page showing picture of new Saudi Arabian king Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

Hackers also left their Twitter handles in case if someone wants to contact them.

The deface page was uploaded as ksa.jpg on Picatinny Arsenal’s Joint Munitions & Lethality Life Cycle Management Command (JM&L LCMC) page.

The reason behind hacking the U.S Army website is unknown, considering both countries are allies for decades. However, the deface message was expressed in following words: 

Oh Oh… Hi U.S. Army We are: TrYaG Al Arab, 1337kSa and Faisal Al Hamzi. 

The text in Arabic means: 

We don’t care about anybody….Those who let us down do not affect us.
