Anonymous hackers continue the campaign called Operation Green Rights. Their latest target is the South Korean website of Monsanto (monsantokorea.com), the US-based chemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation.

The hackers have defaced a page from the “news releases” section of the website. In addition to defacing the website, the hacktivists have also leaked some database information.

At the time of writing, visitors of monsantokorea.com are redirected to Monsanto’s main website, Monsanto.com.

The hacktivists behind Operation Green Rights have been targeting Monsanto for quite some time. Over the weekend, they announced launching distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks against a number of websites belonging to Monsanto and other GMO companies.

It's worth noting that this is the second time they hack the Monsanto Korea website.

“Monsanto: Anonymous thinks you're responsible, in front of mankind, for genocide, environmental disaster and mass contamination,” the hackers noted in a statement.
