The website of the controversial Taiwanese multinational electronics manufacturing company Foxconn has once again become the target of hackers. The organizaion’s rfq subdomain has been defaced by an Indonesian hacker known as Hmei7, TheHackNews reports.
“Owned Foxconn. Indonesian people is here. Be secure. Your Security get down!!” Hmei7
wrote on the defaced webpage.
Last time when Foxconn’s website was hacked
, the attackers leaked some sensitive data from the company’s systems. At the time, the hacktivists protested against the working conditions offered by the firm.
That particular incident attracted the world’s attention to Foxconn factories and shortly after the breach, the organization decided to reduce work hours
and increase pay.
On the other hand, this is not the first time we hear of Hmei7
. At the end of 2011, he hacked the sites of various car manufacturers
, IBM and Siemens
. Back in January 2012, we learned that he defaced a number of three subdomains
hosted on asus.com.
According to his zone-h.org account
, he is responsible for defacing more than 100,000 domains.
