The past few days has been a full terrifying saga! recently some anonymous group of networking group known for launching cyberattack on government institutions, has reportedly hacked the websites of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
This is really startling ! the #EndSARS protest has is really bringing a revolution in Nigeria
The group targeted the EFCC’s website on Friday night, paralyzing web activities of the anti-graft office.
INEC’s website was taken down around midnight on Saturday. The electoral umpire earmarked N1.47 billion for its website and servers in 2019.
A tweet by Anonymous read in part,
“Official website of @officialEFCC has been taken down in support of #EndSARSProtest. CHECK HOST : https://check-host.net/check-report/df89d3bk838 TARGET : https://efccnigeria.org/efcc/ You should have expected us! #EndCorruptionInNigeria
The extent of damage on all the sites was not immediately understood as a result of the breach, which is part of the group’s ongoing coordinated cyberattacks against the Nigerian government.
