Egyptian Government Web Sites Hacked by Anonymous

HackRead reports that Anonymous Jordan recently breached and defaced eight Web sites belonging to the Egyptian government.

The hacked sites belong to the Ministry of Electricity and Energy, the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation, the Presidency of the Council of Minister’s Slums Development Fund, the Ministry of the Supreme Council of Culture, the Red Sea Ports Authority, the National Council for the Welfare of the Families of Martyrs and Invalids Revolution, and two sites belonging to the Ministry of Culture.

Along with an Anonymous logo, HackRead reports that the sites were defaced with the following statement in Arabic: “This website was hacked, because we want to pass a message to the Egyptian people what do u want? u said u didn’t want Mubarak so he left. Your country got into a critical situation, u said u wanted a president, and after the elections, You said Mursi is your president, and Mursi did all he could, its enough that he was an Islamic ruler, (changed the filth that was in Egypt, tourists in Sharm al Sheikh and prostitution etc, bottom line is that I hope my message got to those who don’t want Mursi, cause you cant find a ruler like him in all Egypt.”
