Skopje, 16 July 2020 (MIA) – In addition to the websites of the State Election Commission (SEC) and Time.mk being hacked, the Interior Ministry’s page was also down for several hours on Wednesday.
MoI officials told MIA that its cyber crime unit is currently investigating why the website wasn’t working.
SEC president Oliver Derkoski said that the Commission’s website hacking was reported to the Interior Ministry. He underlined that the site was target of an attack from the outside and an investigation will be launched.
News aggregator site Time.mk was also attacked on Wednesday. Hacker group Anonopsmkd posed on the page: “We don’t forgive, we don’t forget. Be expecting us.”
“Another ‘democratic election’ has ended with the same outcome that keeps repeating every 3-4 years. That’s what happens when the constituency is a parasite looking only to leech off the country, seduced by parties’ empty promises,” read a portion of the hackers’ message.
