Willenium aka “Guy from Africa” Hacks 3 Sudanese Government Websites, Replaces Them with pro-Revolution Pictures & Messages

Throughout the course of the weekend, March 2nd to 4th 2019, a hacker going by the name “Willenium” (@GuyFromAfrica) announced the defacement of several Sudanese Government websites, including the Karari, a search engine optimizer unique to the country of Sudan attempting to connect national businesses to consumers more easily, DeskNow, a DNS hosting service provider operating within the country, as well as the website belonging to the Services of The Information Agency (CAISA) – a national credit monitoring service inside Sudan. While all three hacks were originally carried out two days ago on March 2nd, as of the evening hours of March 4th two of the three websites have since been taken offline completely for repairs. 

The hacks themselves were carried out in conjunction with “Operation Sudan” (#OpSudan), a much larger international hacking campaign calling for regime change whilst disrupting the online platform of Sudan President Omar al-Bashir by whatever means necessary. In a message attached to the hack of Karari, Willenium stated “It’s our time to rise above your crumbling ground, our voice is found, system down!” Similarly, in a message attached to the hack of CIASA, Willenium stated “Hey. Willenium was here for the second time. You see, this is what happens when you hire people with ZERO knowledge.
