ISIS defaces Mauritian website

May 10, 2015

On April 7, 2015, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, USA, released an advisory alerting webmasters how individuals supporting the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS) are exploiting websites running on “unpatched” WordPress. However, the attacks are not limited to WordPress. During the past weeks, various websites built using popular CMSes like Joomla and Drupal also have been defaced.

Meanwhile in Mauritius, people are enjoying the sun, sand and the sea. Earlier in April, I wrote about the “chicken website”. Today SM sent an email to the Mauritius Internet Users informing he found that was compromised.
