An anonymous hacktivist using the handle fiofa fado has hacked a UK government council website and as a result the site has been left defaced. The website is for the town council of Matlock (https://www.matlock.gov.uk) and contains information regarding local events, help and services and news. The attack was posted to Fiofa Fado's Facebook timeline about 12 hours ago and at time of publishing the defacing was still active and other pages of the site appeared to be returning 404 results. The website is running what appears to be the latest version of wordpress.
