WikiLeaks Hacked By Hacking Group OurMine

The Whistleblowing website WikiLeaks Just Got Defaced By Hacking Group OurMine

The non-profit whistleblower Wikileaks website was hacked earlier today by a notorious hacking group namely OurMine.

The hacked website threw a message reading

Hi, it’s OurMine (Security Group), don’t worry we are just testing your…. blablablab, oh wait, this is not a security test! Wikileaks, remember when you challenged us to hack you?

Anonymous, remember when you tried to dox us with fake information for attacking wikileaks?

There we go! One group beat you all! #WikileaksHack lets get it trending on twitter!

The following tweet was attached with the message

OurMine has a reputation of hacking high profile social media accounts including that of Netflix, HBO, Sony, Marvel, Google and public figures including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sunder Pichai, former Twitter CEOs Dick Costolo and Ev Williams

The hacked website is currently unreachable, most probably down for a fix.

While it is still not known how the website was hacked, most probably it was done by attack vector DNS poisoning.

#Update: It has been confirmed that the hack was carried on using DNS Poisoning and WikiLeaks server where not affected or breached.
