Saudi Arabian Government’s Informatics Magazine Hacked by Syrian Hacktivist


Informatics.gov.sa hacked

A Syrian hacktivist who uses the online moniker Dr.Sha6h has breached and defaced the website of Saudi Arabia’s Informatics Magazine (informatics.gov.sa).

The hacker hasn’t defaced the site’s homepage. Instead, he has managed to add an article of his own to the site’s “articles” section.

At the time of writing, the article posted by the hacker is still online.

This isn’t the only government website hacked by Dr.Sha6h over the past period. The hacker, who opposes Syria’s al-Assad regime, has been hacking numerous high-profile websites in an effort to raise awareness of the situation in Syria.

He’s trying to convince other countries, particularly the United States, to get involved and help the people of Syria.

The list of websites targeted by the hacker includes some Argentinian government sites, the United Nations Population Fund in El Salvador and Mali, and the Indian state of Kerala.
