Warriors Crew Hacked & Defaced Several Government Websites Across Brasil This Weekend

This weekend an emerging new group out of Brasil going by the name of “Warriors Crew” hacked and defaced several website’s belonging to Government agencies across Brasil. This includes the Municipal Government of Taquarana, Municipal City of Itumbiara, Government of Santa Cruise and Roteiro City Hall. While the attacks were launched in the early morning of hours of Sunday, December 23rd 2018, as of Monday evening 3 of the 4 websites still remain defaced, indicating that the hackers were either able to change the sites login credentials to lock out its administrators, or the Government agencies are still unaware of the incident. Either way, it’s still pretty hilarious.

In a statements to Rogue Media Labs, “C0nd0r” of Warriors Crew explained that the cyber attacks were launched in protest of various laws, such as Articles 11 & 13 in the EU.  Despite being a South American national, C0nd0r explains how many modern laws in countries across the world, including Brasil, are simply not right and must be protested. Hacks and leaks are just one of many different forms of protest. In a message attached to the hack, Warriors Crew left behind a message reading “the corruption of our rulers almost always begins with a corruption of their principles/morals. Corruption may not strictly speaking be a uniquely Brasilian invention/trait, but we certainly tend to do it better than most.

Municipal Government of Taquarana: https://mirror-h.org/zone/1999648/
Roteiro City Hall: https://mirror-h.org/zone/1999647/

Interestingly enough, the website belonging to the Government of Santa Clara also seems to have their SEO algorithms poisoned. Meaning that when you search for the website on Google its title has been changed to “Akatsuki” and its description to “d888888 dP dP dP oo d8′ 88 88 88 88 88aaaaa88a 88 .dP .d8888b. d8888P .d8888b. dP dP 88 .dP dP 88 88 88888″ 88′ `88 88 Y8ooooo. 88 88 88888″ 88 88…” This is something I have personally never seen or come across before, usually it takes weeks for Google to re-index changes to any websites SEO meta tags and descriptions.
