The Defence Headquarters’ information blogsite, defenceinfo.mil.ng, has been hacked into.
A statement by Major General Chris Olukolade, Director of Defence Information, said that the hackers in the early hours of Friday, 23 January, 2015, defaced the front end.
He, however, said that the hackers could not infiltrate the database of the site.
Olukolade said that preliminary investigation shows that the attack was from the end of the site’s host.
“One ImaSadiq who posed as the hacker has been knocked off and normal activities on the channel has resumed.
“Apparently, the blogsite was targeted because of its role as a major channel for disseminating information on military and security activities in the nation’s counter-terrorism campaign,” he said.
