South African university website hacked by Anonymous

The New World Hackers, which claim a link to Anonymous and its #OpAfrica campaign, have hacked the University of Limpopo’s website.

Anonymous recently released a video announcing #OpAfrica, saying their activities would focus on the issues of child labour and Internet censorship on the continent.

“The focus of the operation is a disassembly of corporations and governments that enable and perpetuate corruption on the African continent,” said the group.

The hack sees users who access the university’s website greeted by Matrix-like green text and a message that “the government has betrayed/failed you”.

A screenshot of the university’s hacked home page is posted below (click to enlarge).
