The hacking group Anonymous has ‘declared war’ against Namibia over it’s decision to allow 5 black rhino trophy hunt licenses to be issued each year for the next 5 years. The group announced yesterday that web site ending in the TLDs gov.na, .na, co.na, na.org will be targets.
Already the national newspaper website has been hacked and defaced, sensitive information was also accessed and posted on other web sites for hackers to gain access to.
A holiday company operating in the country, Just Holidays Namibia, has seen it’s web site taken down.
The action has been started to coincide with the black rhino hunt auction to take place at the Dallas Safari Club this weekend.
The operation is being organised by the TeamDefiant group of the hacking organisation. It has been termed Operation FunKill.
In the tweet that was released yesterday the group said, “This is just a warning to Namibia, Release our beloved Rhino now!“ Video.
