There’s breaking news coming out of Poland. Hackers, reportedly associated with Anonymous, have been attacking Polish government websites to protest this week’s scheduled signing of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).
ACTA is an intellectual property treaty. Poland announced on January 19 that it would sign the treaty on January 26, 2012.
A Twitter account called @AnonymousWiki called for action against the Polish government.
Websites targeted by DDoS attacks include: abw.gov.pl; arimr.gov.pl; ets.gov.pl; knf.gov.pl; mf.gov.pl; mkidn.gov.pl; mzios.gov.pl; pip.gov.pl; praca.gov.pl; premier.gov.pl; stat.gov.pl; uzp.gov.pl.
Here’s a screenshot of premier.gov.pl, currently down, from Google’s cache:
And, what is also quite interesting and shocking — hackers have claimed that the password and login to premier.gov.pl’s admin panel was admin (login) and admin1 (password).
There are also reports a hacked laptop belonging to a deputy of Michał Boni, Poland’s Minister of Administration and Digitization.
This situation will develop further.
