Eleven Media Group’s English-language website was hacked by a group calling itself the Kachin Cyber Army on December 7, a company announcement said last week.
Visitors to the site were greeted by a little text box saying “KCA hacked”, before a screen showing the Kachin Independence Army’s green and red flag and further text appeared.
“Do you Surprise? This’s first warning for you f**king media, it’s 1st lesson. Don’t make nonsense and stupid media attacks to fool our nations. Today we announce to all Burmese media lamers and stupid journalists, we’ll attack all any nonsense stupid Burmese medias from now on. We’ll definitely come back soon if you don’t keep our warning,” the text said.
The Eleven Media Group announcement said that the company regretted that viewers were temporarily unable to view the www.news-eleven.com site. The announcement further stated that the Kachin Cyber Army hackers were using IP addresses based in China. The company said its IT technicians are working to repair the website and investigating whether a Kachin group made the attack.
