  • [01] 'Anonymous' hackers seize justice ministry website for 2nd time

    AMNA--Hackers of the international 'Anonymous' group in the early hours of Wednesday hijacked the Greek justice ministry's website, for the second time in less than a month, demanding the release of an 18-year-old boy arrested on Monday and withdrawal of charges against two other high-school pupils, all three of which are accused of belonging to a group using the pseudonym "Greek Hacking Scene" (GHS) that has claimed responsibility for the first attack on the ministry's website, in a message saying it represented the "Anonymous".

    Hackers of the international 'Anonymous' group at dawn on February 2 hacked the Greek justice ministry's website, in what law enforcement authorities called the first major case of 'digital vandalism' in Greece. Hackers associated with 'Anonymous' pirated the ministry's website, blocking its operation, and uploaded videotext protesting the austerity policies in Greece.amna

    The 'Anonymous' hackers hijacked the justice ministry website again in the early hours of Wednesday, uploading a text demanding the release of the 18-year-old and withdrawal of charges against the other two teenagers, aged 16 and 17. The text also said that the "GHS kids" had nothing to do with the hijacking of that website.

    "The GHS kids had nothing to do with this site. Free the, you're making a big mistake, this was done by the Anonymous and not by the GHS kids", the text said. It then addressed the citizens of Greece, saying that they have been deprived of every right to dignity with the turnover of the country to the IMF and the bankers, that democracy in Greece has died from the moment that a government that has not been elected by the people took over the governance of the country, and warned that for every Article of the shameful bill that will be passed, Anonymous will shut down the system of one Tax Bureau office and delete the debts of the Greek citizens.amna

    Police officials said that there is no doubt that the three suspected hackers belong to the GHS group and that the group made the previous attack on the justice ministry site, as well a subsequent attack on February 12 on several other official websites (including the prime ministers, the citizens protection ministry and others). They also expressed belief that Wednesday's attack on the justice ministry site was made by the same group (GHS), and therefore investigations were continuing to find the rest of the members of the group, which police said are being covered by Anonymous.
