Royal Navy website sunk by hackers
Britain’s Royal Navy was forced to take down its website after it was disrupted by hackers, according to the Ministry of Defence.
At the time of publication, a message on the Royal Navy website reads: “Unfortunately the Royal Navy website is currently undergoing essential maintenance. Please visit again soon.”
It comes only weeks after the Government announced a £650 million national cyber security programme.
“We can confirm that there was a compromise of the Royal Navy website over the weekend,” a spokesman said in a statement.
“There has been no malicious damage; but as a precaution, the RN website has been temporarily suspended. Security teams are investigating.”
Perhaps the Royal Navy needs to get this engineer to turn the server off and on again.
