Transport Ministry’s Website Compromised by Nigerian Hactivists, Hackers #OccupyNigeria

By on January 6, 2012

The website of the Federal Ministry of Transportation has been hacked this morning by a group identifying themselves as “Naija Cyber Hactivists”.

The group left this message on the home page,

“Greetings Nigerian Government, We are Naija Cyber Hactivists. The fetid empire of corruption and consumption that you have created is stifling the lives of hard working Nigerians.

You have sabotaged this country into a monolithic tyranny, yet in doing so made the ties that bind its people brittle.

You shattered this country, liquidating it piecemeal for your own selfish interests.

Nigerians are stirring and with it, revolution is brewing. Perhaps you see yourselves at the eye of the storm, luxuriating in peace and tranquility while all around is ripped apart and made anew.

The recent cutting of the fuel subsidies by you is the last straw. Your horrendous actions have crossed the lines.

Your crimes have united this great melting pot into a white hot alloy of rage.  NaijaCyberHactivists are here to offer a gentle reminder:

You are not at the eye of the storm;

You are at the center of the crosshairs!

Nigerians have grown weary of their shackles, your greed having left us with nothing to lose, but our chains…and we JUST DID!

We: students and workers, unemployed and self-employed, bike men, taxi men, traders, teachers, mai-ruwa, barbers, mechanics, househelps, newspapermen, tomato sellers, civil servants, students, business men have ceased to stop wailing.

WE WILL #OCCUPYNIGERIA.”

The group had, earlier this week, sent a warning stating that they would engage in a series of cyber security attacks until the Federal Government reversed its decision on the hike in petroleum products.

The group had also late last year attacked the website of the Economic and Financial crimes Commission (EFCC) over the planned censorship of the internet by the Federal Government.

The website for the Federal Ministry of Transportations site was still compromised as at press time and can be viewed here

      PORT 80 are generally Open in all web servers. It doesn’t matter weather it is hosted on Windows or Linux, Linux is even worse when it comes to injection of coded. a simple php script by hacker can create havoc Linux server. Hackers only look for security loop holes to attack, NOT hosting platform
