The Defence Headquarters’ information blogsite, defenceinfo.mil.ng, was hacked into at the early hours of Friday, 23 January, 2015. The site was defaced at the front end. However, the hackers could 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.
 
Apparently, the blogsite was targeted because of its role as a major channel for disseminating information on military and security activities in the nation’s counter-terrorism campaign.
 
Kindly disseminate this information for the awareness of the general public.
