Defence Headquarters Website Hacked

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ)’ information blog site,,  that was hacked into in the early hours of Friday, 23 January, 2015 has been restored to full operation.
According to the statement issued on Friday by the Director of Defence Information (DDI), Maj-Gen. Chris Olukolade, the site was defaced at the front end. However, Olukolade noted that the hackers could not infiltrate the database of the site.
He said that 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 (have) resumed", he stated.
Apparently, the DDI added, 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.
