Ugandan Government attacked by Anonymous posted by Editor on Wednesday August 15 2012
Various Ugandan government related web properties have come under attack from attackers operating under the Anonymous flag, this includes @DramaSett3r who has been leaking data over the last 24 hours. All the attacks have been have been carried out are in the name of Anti-LGBT for which in Uganda people have been murdered in the past for their sexuality.
The Ugandan Presidents website was targeted and the news section of the site has been defaced and the following posted.
“You have been warned, repeatedly to expect us.
Your violations of the rights of LGBT people have disgusted us. ALL people have the right to live in dignity free from the repression of someone else’s political and religious beliefs. You should be PROUD of your LGBT citizens, because they clearly have more balls than you will ever have.
Real Ugandan Pride is demonstrated in standing up to oppression despite fearing the abuse, torture and murder inflicted on LGBT at the hands of the corrupt government.
FUCK YOU UGANDAN GOVERNMENT! See you again soon x”
The Uganda Law Society was also defaced with an article added to the site.
“Message to the Government of Uganda: You want to put people to death, only because they have different likings than you do, how fucking disgusting. Let me take you back to the 1800?s, when the Americans would infiltrate Africa and take people to work as slaves only because they were black. Your stereo-types are pathetic, and so are you and your security. This will continue, until you change your ways and beliefs of LGTB. There is no need to put people to death for this, and we will not tolerate it. Put this to a stop now, or else it all will be leaked world wide.. Are we clear? #OpFuckAfrica #EliteSociety”
In addition to the defacements, the national TV network and Uganda Law and Justice Society where targeted and data stolen and dumped to pastebin. The leaked data contains basic server information and a small amount of personal information.
This is not the first time the Ugandan government has been targeted by anonymous with #OpFuckUganda being started some time last year and since then there have been many other attacks.
