The ANC Youth League (ANCYL) website was hacked once again on 25 July 2011. This hacking incident left displayed a picture of president Jacob Zuma and ANCYL president Julius Malema with the headline “Dumb & Dumber”.

The website further displayed the text “Computer science is NOT on his matric results!” next to the image.

This security breach came after yesterday’s hacking where the text ““HA HA HA. I have a 16 Million Rand house and all of you don’t!!!!” was added to the image on the ANCYL’s website home page next to Malema’s face.

The ANCYL website’s hosting and web development company, Cape Town based Unwembi, told MyBroadband that they currently don’t know how the website was hacked, and has taken the site down while they fix the problems.

The Unwembi spokesperson, who refused to give his name, said that yesterday’s hacking only involved changing a single image, and that they are still investigating today’s security breach.

According to Unwembi they are using a combination of open source and custom systems for the website, and that they are looking at a more secure platform for the website to avoid future security breaches.
