HACKER SHUTS ROYAL NAVY WEBSITE

Source: The Star

Posted on November 8, 2010

The website of Britain's Royal Navy was shut down Monday after it was compromised by hackers. A posting said the site was shut for "essential maintenance" and asked users to come back later.

The navy said in a statement that the website's security had been breached over the weekend but that no "malicious damage" had been found.

"The Royal Navy website has been temporarily suspended," the statement read. "Security teams are investigating. Access to this website did not give the hacker access to any classified information."

The site was closed as a precaution. Other military websites remained active.

A hacker who goes by the name TinKode claimed Friday to have gained access to the sensitive site.

The website is primarily used as a public relations site with details about navy operations, programs, equipment, and career opportunities.
