Lock 0

UK (April 3, 2015) On 30 March 2015, a little-known hacking group calling itself the ‘Moujahidin Team’ (aka El Moujahidin) claimed credit for a cyberattack on Air France. The defacement on the website showed the group’s logo and contained the message:

“I promise you O my homeland that I will remain the faithful soldier that defends your border with the blood… and to protect the trust, to deliver the message, and to keep going on the method of ‘Let Algeria live, freely independent, with blood and work of its sons, Allah permitting’  ”

The group also provided two releases on (a site commonly used by hackers to upload leaks or details of cyber-attacks) listing 117 French websites allegedly defaced by the group.
