Hackers target Bahrain airport, news sites to mark Arab Spring uprising

Hackers target Bahrain airport, news sites to mark Arab Spring uprising

The group published images revealing 504 Portal Timeout Errors, claiming the hacking was “on behalf of the transformation of our oppressed people of Bahrain.

Hackers claimed they had removed the internet sites of Bahrain’s international flight terminal, state information firm as well as chamber of business on Tuesday to note the 12-year anniversary of an Arab Springtime uprising in the little Gulf country.

A statement uploaded on the internet by a group calling itself Al-Toufan, or “The Flood” in Arabic, declared to have hacked the airport website, which was inaccessible for a minimum of a half hour in the middle of the day.

It also claimed to have actually taken down the web sites of the state-run Bahrain Information Agency, which was intermittently inaccessible midday, and also the Bahrain Chamber of Business, which was taken down in the afternoon prior to gain access to was later brought back.

The team uploaded photos showing 504 Entrance Timeout Errors, stating the hacking was “in support of the transformation of our oppressed people of Bahrain.” The same group shows up to have actually hacked as well as altered short articles on the website of Akhbar Al Khaleej, a pro-government paper in Bahrain.

The newspaper’s web site was still down Tuesday night.” A variety of Government company internet sites have actually today been the target of malicious cyber-attacks,” the government said in a statement.

” Federal government operations were unaffected by the strikes and also job is continuous to restore access to the targeted sites.”

It did not claim that was behind the attacks.Feb. 14, 2011, marked the initial day of demonstrations led by Bahrain’s Shiite bulk against the Sunni monarchy. Comparable pro-democracy uprisings caused the topple of long-ruling caesars in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen.

Bahrain suppressed its uprising forcibly with the assistance of Saudi Arabia and also the United Arab Emirates, yet has remained to see occasional discontent over the years.Authorities have put behind bars Shiite protestors, deported others, stripped hundreds of their citizenship as well as shut down a leading independent paper.

The same shadowy team of cyberpunks targeted government websites during political elections kept in November that were boycotted by a prohibited Shiite opposition group as well as others.
