Website of Crimean information agency got hacked

09.12.2014, 17:01

On December 7, the website of the Crimean information agency KIA was hacked. When trying to enter the website, users were redirected to the page with a word “hacked”.

As KIA’s acting director Halyna Lysenko told “Kryminform”, currently the editorial office has no access to administrating the site, so the full consequences of the hack are unknown – it is unclear whether the database was erased or no. In any case, the editorial office has backups, and they are ready to restore the website’s operation.

As “Telekrytyka” informs, the hacker, hiding behind the nickname Xham Blue, judging by his Facebook account, “Siempre Rachid Siempre”, lives in Marocco and is a radical islamist, supporting ISIS and “Organization for Liberation of Palestine”.
