A number of local website were in the past 3 months breached by hackers, amoung them the MetBank website, ZiFMStereo.co.zw, Pastel.co.zw, Chips.co.zw and other less familiar brands. The websites were breached on different occasions with the latest being that of ZiFMStereo, which was attacked two days ago.
Most of the websites have been fixed, except for the Metbank’s which we notice is actually now offline.
Like other such breaches locally, these don’t seem to be deliberately targeted at the companies but more a result of random attacks on vulnerable targets. The attacks also didn’t hit the front page, but just injected malicious files to the web servers.
Here are some screenshots from some of the breached websites:
Metbank is a local bank. The Pastel and Chips websites both belong to Chips Computing, a local accounting software company. ZiFM Stereo is one of the most popular radio stations in Zimbabwe.
