You've got to love this one. A Bangladesh government website, for the Rapid Action Battalion, was hacked last week. It was one of those hacktivism style affairs, with the home page defaced and a message left in its place.

The message, in this instance, read:

"GOVERNMENT DOES NOT TAKE ANY STEP FOR ICT DEVELOPMENT. BUT PASSED A LAW ABOUT ANTI-CYBER CRIME. YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS THE CYBER SECURITY OR HOW TO PROTECT OWNSELF. LISTEN. HACKERS R NOT CRIMINAL. THEY R 10 TIME BETTER THAN YOUR EXPERT. WE ARE GINIOUS THAN YOU CAN'T THINK. DEFACED FROM BANGLADESH."

Trouble is, this particular 'ginious' started the defaced page announcement with a bloody big banner saying "HACKED BY SHAHEE_MIRZA" which is not exactly brilliant thinking in terms of hiding your identity. Especially when that is your real name.

Nor, for that matter, is adding your real email address at the bottom of the page...

According to Graham Cluley "Within 24 hours, the authorities had arrested 21-year-old computer science student Shahee Mirza, and three of his friends in connection with the hacking. According to RAB, Mirza has confessed to hacking the website and the sites of at least 22 other organizations. Mirza claims that he had no malicious intentions in defacing the websites."
