NHS websites defaced by Tunisian Islamist hacktivists

SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson questioned whether the government was doing enough to protect UK democracy against online threats, following claims that Russia orchestrated an attack against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party during the US election.

The prime minister has reportedly said it is up to individual political parties to protect themselves against cyber attacks.

The website hijackings further underline the need for organisations particularly political parties to harden their websites against hacktivist attacks.

News of the latest series of attacks by the Tunisian Fallaga Team coincides with reports that more than 100,000 webpages may have been defaced by attackers exploiting a recently patched critical vulnerability in the popular WordPress platform used for publishing websites and blogs.

WordPress issued version 4.7.2 on 26 January 2017 to fix three security flaws and a previously undisclosed critical vulnerability, which was not made public until a week later.

It delayed the disclosure of the critical vulnerability, which could enable a malicious attacker to modify the content of any post or page on a WordPress site, to give WordPress users time to update to the latest version.

However, researchers at website security firm Sucuri , who discovered the vulnerability, report that within 48 hours, multiple public exploits were being shared and posted online.

“WordPress has an auto-update feature enabled by default, along with an easy one-click manual update process,” wrote Daniel Cid, founder and CTO of Sucuri in a blog post .

“Despite this, not everyone is aware of this issue or able to update their site. This is leading to a large number of sites being compromised and defaced.”
