Anti-ISIS Kurdish hacker targets European websites, promoting Peshmerga


ARA News

A Kurdish anti-Islamic State (ISIS) hacker has recently hacked several European websites to promote the Peshmerga forces for their fight against ISIS group.

MuhmadEmad, a Kurdish anti-ISIS hacktivist working for the Kurdlinux team, has hacked several Dutch, Belgian and Danish websites, leaving a message praising the Kurdish Peshmerga forces.

The Kurdish hacker has recently hacked the Belgian business technology news website ZDnet, and websites of the Dutch organization Deaf and the Danish Jellinek news website.

The ZDnet website said the hacker took advantage of a vulnerability on wordpress.

This is not the first time the Kurdish hacker targeted websites leaving a message saying ‘Long Live the Peshmerga’.

On Monday, the National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) said that its official website was hacked by MuhmadEmad. “The perpetrator also posted a picture of the Kurdish flag, and wrote ‘long live Peshmerga’.”

The Irish Times reported that the same hacker has previously targeted sub-domains of computer group Dell and those of Fiji’s defence and police forces.

The hacker has earlier targeted some governmental websites as well. In August 2015, he hacked American websites over Turkey’s bombing of Kurds.
