University of NSW Facebook get hacked, hackers post NSFW images of Mia Khalifa and Kim Kardashian lookalike

This is one University open day which the officials of University of New South Wales would love to forget in a hurry. Unknown hackers hacked its Facebook page and flooded it NSFW content much to the embarrassment of university officials.

The hackers posted graphic sexual images and links to soft-core adult websites on the University of New South Wales Facebook page early this morning, shortly before it kicked off it’s Open day.

One of the posts, which has since been deleted, showed images of Lebanese Mia Khalifa and semi-clothed photos of a Kim Kardashian lookalike. While other images contained NSFW content as well as a detailed tutorial on how to French kiss along with photos of guns.

The UNSW Facebook page is quite popular and has around 360,000 “likes.” Both students and some Facebook users slammed the University officials on the posts while other students and UNSW FB page followers were confused to find the NSFW content.

‘Not really appropriate for a world top 50 university is it UNSW,’ wrote Paul Walters.

While, Hugh McMullen wrote,‘This is pretty disgraceful. And embarrassing to our image on open day,’

‘If you can’t even secure a freaking Facebook account, how can you be called the leading engineering institute in au?! Even a 10 year-old boy knows that,” Adam Hongru Liu posted.

Some Facebook users sought to make light the hack. ‘Either the IT guy went on clicking virus links, or he just got fired and decided to revenge tongue emoticon,’ wrote Albert Hung Vincent Loo.’

‘Go home, UNSW! You’re drunk,’ said Hasanul Rizqa.

‘I should transfer to UNSW,’ joked Meenesh Kumar.

A UNSW spokesperson said the site’s administrators were alerted about a security breach early this morning.

“All avenues were tried internally to regain access to the site, but administrators had been locked out altogether,” they said.

After making multiple attempts to contact Facebook, the University managed to regain access to the site. They have since removed all inappropriate content from the page. Their post on Facebook now says,

“So…this just happened. Our Facebook page was hijacked, as you would have guessed already. We are working with Facebook to resolve this issue. Thank you all for your patience and support and we look forward to resuming normal service!”

“We are thrilled that our Open Day is on today and we have welcomed thousands on to the campus. We would like to share this fabulous day with you so we’ll upload some snaps of our incredible campus decked out for Open Day.”
