Pro-Palestine hackers spraypaint gov training quango
National Skills Academy bitten by JaCKal
A government training organisation - the National Skills Academy - has had its home page hacked and replaced by a message supporting Palestine.
Much of the rest of the site is still working but the front page has been replaced with a picture of a container ship with Gaza on the side and a gloating message from hacker JaCKal.
It says: "Virtual Protests will continue..! Everything for PALESTINE! JaCKal Ownz Your System. I came challengeing to the world THE END."
The National Skills Academies, according to the bit of its website which hasn't been hacked, are "employer-led centres of training excellence".
They're split into 14 different areas including construction, financial services and creative and cultural skills - these bits seem to have kept JaCKal out.
A spokeswoman for the National Skills Academy told us their techies were in the process of taking the website down. She did not when the hack happened or how it had happened. ®
No doubt Isreal will make "a reasoned and proportionate response".
A couple of tanks and an F16 if past form is anything to go by.
RE: Terrorist you say?
".....I cant see one mans...." I suspect this is more likely the work of a juvenile.
".... defacing of a website bringing fear to the masses....." Agreed, the stilted English often seen on these script-kiddie efforts is more likely to generate amusement than fear. The Israelis have more to fear from the people that are trying to kill them on a daily bassis, not bored juvies playing at being 1337 hax0r activists.
".....Judging by the down votes it does appear that the pro Isreali brigade dont like it which in my book makes it a good thing...." Why? Becasue you are anti-semitic, or just supporting the latest trendy political movement amongst the hip sheeple? I can wager it's not becasue you have an opinion formed from an actual in-depth historical knowledge or personal experience of the Palestinian issue.
/Paris, 'cos your sentiments are merely born of fashion.
"No doubt Isreal will make "a reasoned and proportionate response"....." Why would Israel need to make a response to what is obviously a childish piece of script-kiddie hacking on a server that is nothing to do with them in another country? Bit paranoid, worried the Jooooooos are coming to get you? I'm betting they have much more important things to worry about than script-kiddies or paranoid fools like yourself. They reserve the tanks and F-16s for people that shoot rockets at their cities and send suicide bombers to their malls, not people with just too little sense.
