One of Zimbabwe’s 3 most read daily newspapers, the Daily News, had its website hacked yesterday. An email tip we got, and a tweet early Sunday morning say the site was showing the page below instead of the usual content.
From what we can see so far the hacking appears to be one of those random hack attacks made by unscrupulous characters on unsecured websites. The website has since been restored and appears to be functioning normally.
Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe, the company that owns the Daily News, has had major challenges with the website. The website has had a generous amount downtime the past couple of months.
