Nigeria's House Of Reps Page Hacked




The "About" page of the Nigerian House Of Representatives website was hacked today, by a hacker calling himself or herself "Haxor Ositilife Leet".

The page, which when clicked begins to play music and display the hacker's graphics, now displays an ominous threat to the page's web administrator "Hello Admin," the warning says. "Haxor Ositilife Leet was here. Patch your security or the next time we come [it's] gonna be rough."
 


The warning, which has been on the page for much of the day, ends saying "No hard feelings though this is just a security reminder.

The break-in highlights an obvious failure of the House of Reps site. The website, which also houses an extensive amount of acts, bills, notice papers, and other pertinent documentation, seemed to be a major target for the hacker, who also linked to his or her Facebook page.

On the page, the amateur hacker outlines many of his or her past and future targets. Photos on the page show he or she has previously hacked university websites and altered JAMB results online. The hacker promises the next site hacked will be that of the National Institute of Legislative Studies.

"Security is just an ILLUSION," the hacked page threatened. "We will be back soon."
