Pro-Palestine hackers spraypaint gov training quango

National Skills Academy bitten by JaCKal

Boost IT visibility and business value

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. ®
