June 20, 2016

On June 16, 2016, the hacker SkyNetCentral conducted a DDoS attack against the official website of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), forcing the website offline despite the fact that it used CloudFlare’s DDoS protection service. The hacker also conducted DDoS attacks against the official website of Egypt’s Freedom and Justice Party, which is affiliated with the MB. Additionally, the hacker also managed to bypass the website’s security and steal files from its database, which he then leaked online.
