Hackers Attack Dominican Republic Presidency website

Final week a bunch of hackers or laptop consultants, who outline themselves because the “Public Liberation Entrance (PLF), hacked (deactivated) the web site of the Presidency (www.presidencia.gob. c), after having revealed a press release threatening the President with disabling the positioning if he doesn’t change his type of authorities and making a collection of claims.

The risk said: “To make sure that you obtain this warning Mr. President, tomorrow at midday we are going to take away your net web page“ presidencia.gob.do ”from the world vast net for six hours. This DDoS assault shall be accompanied by “spam” that may attain your emails on the Presidential Palace with our message ”.

Moreover, a number of portals or net pages of the Dominican State whose domains (addresses) are at present deserted have been hacked, corresponding to that of the Nationwide Congress (http://www.congreso.gov.do/) which has the next message in English: Hacked By SWAT indicating that it has been hacked and is below the management of a bunch of Hackers or laptop consultants who name themselves SWAT

It is vitally vital that each private and non-private establishments elevate their ranges and requirements of Web safety, correctly replace their programs and prepare their personnel. And that the Hackers or laptop consultants who’re devoted to the sort of practices know that it’s unlawful, with critical prison penalties of as much as 5 years in jail and critical monetary fines.

We hope that the Presidential Workplace of Info and Communication Know-how (OPTIC) assumes its accountability by implementing an ITGOB coverage that eliminates disused web sites, along with configuring the portals of the Dominican State below larger safety requirements, since sadly the OPTIC is stagnant, we simply must do not forget that the United Nations (UN) revealed a report analyzing the world scenario in digital authorities, the place we’re painfully within the final locations of Latin America in place 84, with a lower of 16 positions in comparison with the 12 months 2008, we have been in place 68. What occurs in our nation that public officers DO NOT WORK, the nation is getting out of hand.
