RYV Hacks Lebanese Govt. Sites Again, Enables Facebook Users to Post Messagesإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The hacktivist group Raise Your Voice hit again on Thursday, hacking around 10 Lebanese government websites, the second such attack in nine days.
“We are RYV, short for Raise Your Voice, and we are simply a group of people who could not bare (sic) sitting in silence, watching all the crimes and injustice going on in Lebanon. We will not be silenced and brainwashed by your media. We will not stop until the Lebanese people mobilize, demand their rights, and earn them,” said the group’s message posted on the hacked websites.
The same message was posted during the previous attacks. However, the group added something new this time, a plugin that enables facebook users to post their own messages on the hacked websites.
“Write your message to the dear Lebanese government,” read a headline above the facebook messages.
RYV also stressed that it does not "belong to or support any political group."
The group has recently vowed to continue hacking government websites until the Lebanese people earn the rights they are asking for and until living standards are improved.
“We will not stop until this government's self-made problems are solved, like the power shortage, water shortage, rise in gas prices and rise in food product prices,” the group has said.
The activists once again posted a caricature on the home page of the websites depicting a skinny man, representing the people, feeding a fat man described as the government.
The group previously hacked several government sites in early March.
Below is the list of the websites that were hacked on Thursday:
