WhatsApp Website Defaced By Palestinian Hackers

Jordanian Hackers Palestine2

Some peace loving Palestinian hackers today decided to deface the WhatsApp website for a short time. Currently we do not think there is any sign of customer data being lost and this seems like a DNS hack. On the other hand they could have rerouted traffic during that time if they managed to redirect the DNS. That on top of WhatsApp data having laughable encryption could mean some nasty surprises. This just goes to show the need for a secure cross platform messaging system like BBM to actually be released though BlackBerry does not do much more to encrypt conversations. WhoIS records show that WhatsApp changed their IP address earlier today so it seems like a simple redirect hack. The Palestinian Hackers decided to take advantage of their “peace loving” hack to explain why they deserve your support. I wonder why they think this form of virtual terrorism helps anyone… Kudos to the WhatsApp team for quickly correcting the issue.

  1. Didn’t see it firsthand (just the screen capture pic in the article), but I don’t think KDMS mentioned anything about Palestine in the LeaseWeb attack.

  2. “deliver TOW messages.” Awesome.

  3. The first thing that jumped out at me is the misspelling of Palestinian in big ol’ green letters! LOL Kind of hard to take them seriously after that.

  4. It’s hard to take them seriously at all but you have to love how a person who wants “the right to live in peace” is proactively hacking websites

  5. Awesome! They should hack blackberry website. We need to open their eyes and let them know that we the loyal users are fedup with their constant lies and incompetence.
