Update: Riyad Bank Website Gets Hacked
Update: the site’s homepage is up again.
Saudi bank Riyad Bank has been hacked by a group of hackers who posted a message demanding to end the service of the Mayor of Al Madina province in Saudi Arabia. Al Madina is the second holiest city in Islam, and the burial place of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and it is the capital of the first Islamic state established by the Prophet and his companions after early Muslims migrated from oppression imposed by their people in Mecca around 1400 years ago.
The hacker/s only managed to hack the homepage of the site as the internal pages seems intact, the hackers displayed a message on the bank’s homepage apologizing to the bank and saying “we are hacking you to deliver a message to the king of Saudi Arabia.” They asked him to fire the Mayer.
