Hackers attack Latvian news website

Unknown hackers have cracked the website of Latvian news agency LETA, which remains inaccessible, an agency official told reporters on Wednesday.

When attempting to open the LETA webpage, visitors encounter the following message: “Dear colleagues, before publishing questionable specialists’ opinion about small hosting companies and discussing competence matters, we advise you to revise the content of these articles and stop publishing offensive texts.”

The hackers then claim that “nothing is secure and everything could be cracked.”

The LETA earlier published an article on hacker attacks against several Latvian websites. The article cited expert opinions indicating that companies that had their pages hosted by small hosting firms faced the biggest threat from hackers.

Latvia has been included in the world’s top 10 countries with websites containing the largest number of malicious software. The country registered 9,398,597 hacker attacks in 2010, according to Kaspersky Lab data.
