The cyber-attack is considered by security experts to be "moderate" but it is not yet clear whether other servers within the Ministry have been affected or the hacker has chosen to disorient the administrators in this way.


The hacking attack is signed by the hacker Fighter Anas, possibly of Bangladeshi origin and supported by Royal Battler BD, the largest Bangladeshi hacking community.

SecNews is conducting its own research to bring more information to light. The competent managers, by direct order of the competent Minister Mr. Voridis, must appoint the server down and control the type of access hackers have gained.

What is defacement?
A defacement attack is a kind of "vandalism" of a website, where hackers penetrate the website and replace its content with their own messages. It is usually used to cover something bigger, in the background, and the messages may convey a political or religious message, inappropriate content, or a notice that the site has been compromised.


Content alteration is usually achieved through use SQL injection and login to the administrator account. Common targets of defacement attacks are government figures and websites, or religious websites, and attacks are most often carried out by hacktivists, who prefer large pages with many viewers.
