Middle East Cyber Army Hacked Auckland University Website

Middle East Cyber Army Hacked Auckland University Website

The hacker group "Middle East Cyber Army" has hacked university of Auckland's English Language Academy website and then posted the following message: 

"Hacked By Middle East Cyber Army".
"WE ARE HERE JUST TO DELIVER A MESSAGE !!! WE ARE MUSLIMS, AND WE ARE PROUD."

The message also contains contained a phrase in Arabic which translated to: "Lord God and chosen Islam as a religion and our master Muhammad as a prophet and a messenger."

Administrators restored the website to it's original after 12 hours (10.30am NZ time). 

The group may have been confused about who it had targeted - the group said it had hacked "The University of the Australian" in a Facebook message posted on Friday evening.

An Auckland University spokeswoman said, "The ELA website was hacked over the weekend and as soon as ELA was alerted, the site was taken offline and replaced with a maintenance page."

"The website was hosted on a third party server and students should not be concerned about privacy. No student data is stored on the server and no data was compromised."
