Pappi Hex

Following the ongoing #EndSARS protests in Nigeria over police brutality and bad governance, international hacktivist group, Anonymous has joined the protest and hacked Airtel Nigeria, DSTV and many other government websites.

Last week the group hacked GoTV and DSTV, two satellite TV services owned by MultiChoice and made it accessible to everyone for free, including subscribers that didn't own a dish.

On Monday, the hack group broke into the Airtel Nigeria network and shared 1000 worth of airtime to subscribers on the network. 

The hack group last week gave the Nigerian government 72 hours to address the issues raised by the protesters or face several hacking campaigns. The group later carried out its threat.

Anonymous also took down websites belonging to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), First Bank of Nigeria (FBN), the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Access Bank, and several over websites belonging to the Nigerian government.

The group also dumped about 50,000 government emails and phone numbers including that of the president online.

However, the CBN and NSE in separate tweets claimed that their websites were never breached by any group of hackers, adding that such claims were without "foundation."

  1. lol. fake news. Anonymous never hacked these ISP. They only DDOS some websites and it later came back up. Also, the 72 hours threat one attention seeking @litemods posted as a video, the kid later lied he wasn't responsible for it.

    So, it's not true. But you were correct for the website DDOS part.

    1. Dude get the facts before making such comments. Yes, Anonymous DDoSed those sites and took control of the admin panel of the NSE website. They did open DSTV and GOtV which multiple Choice later patched...they even sent users message regarding the patch.

      Also, Airtel was breached and NGN 1000 was disbursed to users which they (Airtel) said they didn't send. They later cleared all the account balance shared to users that received the NGN 1000 sent by Anonymous. I received it and my account that had about NGN 4000 was cleared alongside the one Anonymous sent.

      So pls get your facts right before you call this fake news
