A Serbian parliament website was hit by Kosovan hackers who posted their flag on the site.

 

The ‘Kosova Hackers Group' told visitors to the parliament website that it had also attacked other official sites on Wednesday, including the Serbian army's, in action to block Serbian government sites.

 

Slobodan Markovic, an advisor in the Serbian telecommunications ministry, told Radio B92 that Serbian government sites do not have a unique security system but that each ministry decides how to protect the data. He said: “Those hackers are using programmes that are freely accessible on the Internet and can be downloaded free of charge."

 

The Daily Press said several other official Internet sites were also under ‘Kosovo Hackers' attack on the same day, including the Defence Ministry, Commercial Court and Serbian Business Registers Agency.
