Anonymous hacking group has shut down the website of the Central Bank of Nigeria, https://www.cbn.gov.ng
It was the third cyber asset of the Nigerian government to be hit by the group, which declared it was sympathising with #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria.
The apex bank website was unreachable on Friday night, as it repeatedly gave ‘server error.”
“500 – Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are
looking for, and it cannot be displayed”, was the response loggers got.
It said it’s out to “expose government’s secrets & dirtyfiles”.
Up till Friday night, the group was still in control of the Twitter account @nbcgovng.
The hackers have alsohacked a new Twitter account opened by the commission.
Also on Friday, Anonymous hacked into the database of the Nigerian Police Force.
Update: CBN site, https://www.cbn.gov.ng/ was back after early Saturday, without any reference to the intrusion.
