Cowardly mischief makers, possibly with the backing of some higher-ups
over the weekend hacked into the web-site of the New Democrat
disfiguring it with a photograph and a message scrawled on it which
read: "can you feel it, your rage feeds our power."
This paper was alerted to the hacking when series of telephone calls,
some from Germany, England, the United States and Allafrica.com started
coming in making inquiries. This is the second time the New Democrat
website has been hacked.
The Management of the paper is now working on finding a solution and is
also hiring professional IT experts to determined the source behind the
hacking. All this is happening when this paper has been slapped with a
libel suit and ordered to pay US$900,000.
Early this year, according to report, attempts were made to hack into
the personal computer of former TRC Chairman Cllr. Jerome Verdier, and
there are now unconfirmed reports that similar attempts are now aimed at
the General Auditing Commission.
