Director Defence Information, Maj. General Chris Olukolade says the information website of the Defence Headquarters, defenceinfo.mil.ng, which was hacked into at the early hours of Friday, January 23, 2015 has been restored.
According to a statement by Olukolade, posted on PRNigeria.com, the site was defaced at the front end. He said the hackers could, however, not infiltrate the database of the site. Preliminary investigation shows that the attack was from the end of the site’s host.
“One ImaSadiq who posed as the hacker has been knocked off and normal activities on the channel has resumed,” he stated.
the Defence Information Director added that it was apparent that the blogsite was targeted because of its role as a major channel the military uses in disseminating information on military and security activities in Nigeria’s counter-terrorism campaign.
