The Econet Wireless broadband website www.econetbroadband.co.zw has been hacked. We just discovered this right now while working on a story for the new Econet email system, which we will post later.
If you visit the site right now, you will see it’s been defaced with the following banner:
HP250 G7/8 Dual Core
Dell Inspiron 3542
A section that normally contains a link to the Econet support page has also been defaced with the following:
The support link now redirects to the following Facebook page:
It’s not clear yet if the creators of the Facebook page are the ones that have hacked into the Econet site. We’ll try to find out more this evening. We wrote about this same Facebook hate group back in April in an article about Econet’s delay of the launch of mobile broadband services.
We’ve tried to call the Econet guys we know so they can have the site taken down ASAP to fix it and lock it down. No one is answering. The Econet call centre ofcourse is a non-starter but we’ll try it. We’ve also sent emails to people we know there and hopefully they’l see it soon enough.
We’l post more if we get anything. If you happen to know more about this, just add a comment to this story or send us an email.
