Greece’s central financial institution turned the goal of a cyber assault by activist hacking group Nameless on Tuesday which disrupted service of its web site, a Financial institution of Greece official stated on Wednesday.
"The assault lasted for a couple of minutes and was efficiently tackled by the financial institution’s safety techniques. The one factor that was affected by the denial-of-service assault was our web site," the official stated, declining to be named.
Nameless originated in 2003, adopting the Man Fawkes masks as their image for on-line hacking. The masks is a stylized portrayal of an outsized smile, purple cheeks and a large mustache upturned at each ends.
"Olympus will fall. A couple of days in the past we declared the revival of operation Icarus. Right now we now have constantly taken down the web site of the Financial institution of Greece," the group says in a video on You Tube.
"This marks the beginning of a 30-day marketing campaign towards central financial institution websites the world over."
