“Emiratis” hack Lusailâ€™s Newspaper Website
In yet another cyber attack, Dohaâ€™s Lusail Newspaper, part of Dar Al Sharq Group which has been temporarily shut down has been hacked by a group of people in the UAE on Sunday. This is after the recent hacking of the Qatar News Agency that led to the ongoing GCC Crisis.
In reference to a Press Release from the Arabic Newspaper, the hackers managed to get full control of the Newspaperâ€™s website and posted abusive comments. They went ahead to replace a poll by the newspaper and replaced it with, â€œEmirati hackers were hereâ€ and â€œEmiratis and Saudis are your Lordsâ€ as well as multiple false and derogatory accusations.
The Vice Editor-In-Chief Mohammad Al Haji reiterated the fact that the Newspaper will not cower down to hackers and will resume normal operations.
