Babiš websites hacked

02-08-2016

Hackers affiliated with the Anonymous group targeted websites of firms owned by Czech Finance Minister Andrej Babiš on Monday to protest against a bill on electronic sales registration and gambling legislation which empowers the state to block online sites. The group threatened that attacks would continue unless the plans were dropped. President Miloš Zeman signed the law on gambling in early June. According to the Czech News Agency, the websites of Agrofert Holding and the Penam bakeries were temporarily unavailable on Monday evening. Agrofert spokesman Karel Hanzelka confirmed that the websites of Agrofert Holding and its subsidiary Wotan Forest had been affected, but made clear the move had not affected company operations.
