CHRAJ Restore ‘Hacked’ Website

The website of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) in Ghana which was earlier taken over by internet hackers has been restored.

Internet hackers took over the human rights commission's website early Monday but with support from NITA, the site was restored by midday.

The Public Relations Officer of the commission, Bernice Aidoo said investigations had been instituted into the matter.

The taking down of CHRAJ's website happened two weeks after many public institution's website were also hacked. The official government of Ghana portal was also hacked during the same period

The hackers of the CHRAJ website [www.chrajghana.com] on Monday who were suspected to be coming from Tunisia in north Africa left a banner at the site describing themselves as “Hani Xavi”.

“Hacked By Hani Xavi #Fallaga_Tunisian_Team #1.2.3 Viva_Tunisie,” an Arabic song and an image of the Tunisian flag are all that could be seen on the human rights commission website.

The Government of Ghana website www.ghana.gov.gh was recently hacked by a Turkish national who directed traffic on the site to his Facebook account.

Some other state institutions including, Ministry of Education, Navy, National Service Scheme , Works and Housing and the Foreign Affairs Ministries all had their official sites hacked by the same hacker about two weeks ago.

The latest development have raised concerns about cyber security in Ghana.
