Hackers attack again, and this time hack an Afghan government official’s twitter account.
“ArabAttack” posted a message along with a logo holding Syrian flag on twitter account of Police General Mohammad Ayub Salangi, the deputy minister of Interior Affairs with (roughly) the following text in Arabic:
“This site is hacked by the Syrian electronic army. It has been hacked as a reminder of the Naksa Day and a reminder that this land will be returned.”
The second part of the above text, and the indication to Naksa Day indicates they were targeting an Israeli, and not an Afghan, a native Syrian who translated the text said.
With a verified account, General Salangi is one of the numerable officials who has an active online presence.
This is the first case where hackers attack an Afghan government official’s twitter page.
Until filing of this story, the tweet displaying the hackers’ message was still on Gen Salangi’s timeline.
