Georgian President’s official webpage hacked
Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb. 25 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili's official webpage on Facebook was hacked.
The same message in Russian appeared for some time at President Saakashvili's page, the Georgian presidential administration said today.
These reports permanently appeared for a few minutes and did not differ from each other. Two attacks on the President's page were made within two hours. As a result, the page was blocked for some time.
This is not the first attack on the Georgian President's website. The first attack was made during the Georgian-Russian military conflict in August 2008.
This attack was made after the Georgian bloggers and their allies outside of Georgia on February 23 sent 200 messages to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's page on Facebook with a demand of Georgia's de-occupation. Later, the Russian presidential administration has blocked the page for Georgian users and deleted all the messages.
Military actions were launched in the Georgian territory, South Ossetia on Aug.8 in 2008. Later the Russian troops occupied the Tskhinvali city and drove the Georgian military back. Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced two unrecognized republics as the occupied territories.
