Anonymous Hackers Hit Leading Bangladeshi Newspaper
The hackers said the attack was part of Anonymous effort 'to raise its public profile the world over.'
The English-language Bangladeshi newspaper The Daily Star recently acknowledged that its Web site was hacked earlier this week by members of Anonymous.
"The group uploaded a post headlined 'Anonymous Continues Struggle For Justice' at the top of the Daily Star website around 4:30pm [Tuesday]," The Daily Star reports. "Around one hour after the post was removed, the hackers uploaded the same post under another headline 'Anonymous Steps It Up.'"
"'Anonymous continued its bid for true democracy and freedom today, when they started on a new path to bring to an end the corruption and oppressive regimes of todays governments. In a call for a truely open society Anonymous has started to raise its public profile the world over,' the hackers wrote on the defaced page," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs. "The site has been restored and hopefully, its administrators have managed to patch up the holes exploited by the hackers."
