Members of 'Jember Hacker Team' defaced the official website of Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Thursday in what they claim was a protest against corruption in the government and wealth inequality in the country.
For several hours the website was redirecting those who visited it to the hackers' own website. The image indicates that a hacker dubbed MJL00,7 from a group known as the Jember Hacker Team, was responsible for the incident.
The only message reads: 'This is a PayBack From Jember Hacker Team'.
JHT told local news site Merdeka that it carried out the attack because of increasing anger at the current administration.
"Corruption is rampant, the poor are everywhere. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer," a representative from the group told the site (after translation from Google), hinting that there may be more cyber-related protests in the future.
The government is apparently working with law enforcement teams to examine log files in a bid to trace the origin of the attack.
