The hacker is protesting against the country's government
Hacker Davy Jones continues to breach Sri Lankan government websites. His latest target is the website of Mahindananda Aluthgamage, the country’s Sports minister.The hacker hasn’t defaced the site, but he leaked data from its database, including the administrator’s username and password.
“I have dumped Sri Lankan sports minister's personal web site. Just for play a game with him. Most of my Sri Lankan friends say he is not suitable for that post,” he said.
Davy Jones told me that he had started attacking Sri Lanka websites because “there is no justice” and because of the corruption in the government.
Besides the sites from Sri Lanka, the hacker has also targeted the ones of the Union of Arab Banks (uabonline.org) and the Embassy of India in Tehran (indianembassy-tehran.ir).
None of the websites have been defaced, but the hacker leaked information from both of their databases.
Earlier this month, Davy Jones hacked the websites of Sri Lanka’s Port Authority, a couple of Sri Lanka TV stations, and the country’s Board of Investment.
