Belgian Senate’s website hacked?

Published on 19/05/2015
The Francophone daily Le Soir reports that it was a case of hacking by the hackers collective Anonymous. Le Soir reports that Anonymous claimed responsibility for forcing the Senate’s site off-line in a tweet posted on the collective’s Twitter account.

The Speaker of the Belgian Senate Christine Defraigne (Francophone liberal) told the press agency Belga, ‘We are investigating whether the outage was caused by a technical problem or by hacking.’

Ms Defraigne added that if it was caused by hacking it will not be without consequences. ‘Hacking is a criminal offence. The Federal Judicial Authorities have been informed.’
