‘Cyber of Emotion’ Hacks Saudi Websites

August 25, 2015

Many Saudi websites have been hacked by a group that gave warnings that it would be making the attacks. The group, known as “Cyber of Emotion,” hacked more than 24 government websites over a period of two hours.


As reported by the Saudi Al-Riyadh newspaper, the visitors to the website were directed to a page that read “We do not want to harm the site. Had it been hacked by enemies, your personal information, emails and registration data would have been compromised.”

The hackers said that their team had already warned their administrators that the websites are not properly secured and they should do something about it, but, they said, the warnings were ignored.

The newspaper reported that the websites hacked included that of government hospitals, municipalities, education departments, social development offices and health departments.
