Hackers disrupt Palestinian Web site

May 27, 2012 at 11:15 AM   |   Comments

RAMALLAH, West Bank, May 27 (UPI) -- A report from the Palestinian Authority's intelligence agency was posted on the state's official Web site Sunday, apparently by hackers who broke into the site.

The Wafa news site was taken offline Sunday after the intrusion was discovered.

The Ma'an news agency said the Palestinian Authority blamed unspecified anti-Palestinian groups for the hacker attack.

The report posted on Wafa had been published earlier on other Web sites, Ma'an said. It detailed the establishment of a human-rights Web site that was actually a front for PA intelligence.
