Turkish hackers of the group called Ayyildiz Tim have breached and defaced the official website of the United Nations Development Program in Ecuador (undp.org.ec).
The hacktivists replaced the website’s index page with their own, HackRead reported. They posted a message of protest against various countries, including the United States, Armenia and Israel.
At the time of writing, the defacement page posted by the hackers has been removed. The website appears to be working properly. However, it’s uncertain if the vulnerability exploited by the attackers has been patched by the site’s administrators.
Last month, the same hacker collective defaced a United Nations Ethiopia website.
The group’s zone-h.org account shows that in the first days of 2014, Ayildiz Tim targeted dozens of commercial websites from Canada, India and Russia.
