Buys says the hacker defaced 14 sites on 16 October, making it the worst hacking attack in SA's history. He says the hacker appeared to have focused on sites operating on Windows NT and bearing a .co.za domain name. "The hacker defaced the sites simply by deleting pages and replacing them with a blank page featuring his, or her, name. The successful attacks occurred in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
"Since we started monitoring hackers that target South African sites in 2000, we never saw one hacker deface so many local sites in one day," says Buys.
