National bureau of classification’s website hacked

The website of the national bureau of classification was hacked yesterday following publication of a controversial regulation that subjects prose and poetry published in the Maldives to the bureau’s approval.

The site has, however, been fixed today. “We are here to deliver a message,” read the hacked ‘mission page of the website.

“This is our world now. The world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We exist without nationality or skin colour. You wage wars, murder, cheat, lie to us and try to make us believe it’s for our good,” read the message.

“I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. I am a hacker and this is my manifesto. Huh, right, manifesto? You may stop me, but you can’t stop us all.”

The hackers signed off as ‘Invaded by Anonymous Maldives.’
