Update: 9.06pm, 9.32pm. AEST. Check below for response of contact from at least one of the defacers. Today has seen hundreds of websites owned and operated by Australian private businesses defaced by Indonesian hackers who are opposed to the recent news that Australia and NSA together had spied on Indonesia in the past, see here. The spree of defacement's was tipped off to me by a twitter user (@joshua0). After a quick search of the #OpAustralia tag within twitter it has become clearly obvious that the hackers had been at it all weekend leaving a huge list of sites, most if not all of which are still defaced. The attacks have left a few different defacement pages across the sites and many of them appear to be running Joomla and are on shared hosting in a few different locations around the world. Now i'm not really sure why attacking private, small business is the thing to do but it seems its just how it rolls these days. If your site has been breached i would suggest contacting your hosting provider and asking them to explain why and how. So far i have found about 170 sites via twitter but there appears to be many more. See all defacement submitted to Zone-H with .au domains here** Update: **1.Its come to my attention this "#OpAustralia" is being mistake for the Anonymous based #OpAustralia and this is not the case. This OpAustralia is being carried out by Indonesian hackers due to recent information surfacing about trade agreements as stated above. 2.The attacks are also now causing a bit of stir from the Australian public due to the nature of innocent websites and charities or business who devote time to helping others. Shortly after this occurred i contacted one of the emails within the deface and have had the following response. Message to Australia
Stop spying Indonesia, If Australia still spy on Indonesia, we do not hesitate Indonesian Hacker reluctant to undermine Australia website Tell the Australian government .. Stop all forms of entering Indonesia .. Or we will make your internet network was destroyed .. We will stop if pemerinta Australia to say sorry to Indonesia
The second message is a comment to the response and results in a direct threat to Australian websites and internet.
Stop spying Indonesia ! Or Australian Internet Was Destroyed By Indonesia !
