THE website of the Workers’ Party, http://www.wp.org.sg, has come under attack twice in the last two days by a notorious Brazilian hacker group that call itself the Smurf_RedHat.
Early investigations showed that the website’s password had been hacked.
The party’s IT committee tracked the group to the Ir4Dex Deface Group, which was found to have used open proxy servers in Malaysia, South Korea and France to launch the attack.
“To them, it’s like collecting trophies,” a party official said. The party is monitoring if the hackers will attack again but said the website should be up by 6pm tomorrow. – Lee Ching Wern
