Bangkok: Six official websites of Thai government were hacked on Monday allegedly by an Islamic group from Tunisia which posted pictures of Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in Myanmar on the webpages.
The Islamic group calling itself Fallag Gassrini & Dr Lamouchi, left messages saying: “Your sites have been hacked by Fallag Gassrini & Dr Lamouchi hacker group from Tunisia. You have to give respect to our people. We, the Fallaga team, are Muslims. We are peace-loving people.”
They also posted pictures of Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in Myanmar and Muslim child victims of bomb attacks were posted on the sites, Bangkok Post reported.
This hacker group previously worked with other Islamic groups and hacked several Israeli and French websites.
An official at the Ministry of Information and Technology Communication said the hacking was conducted simultaneously worldwide, using the Linux command line.
