Novell SUSE sites hacked

by Nikola Strahija on October 3rd, 2005 Three Novell OpenSUSE community web site were defaced on Sunday by politically motivated hackers presumably from Iran.


A group called IHS (Iran Hackers Sabotage) broke into OpenSUSE.org, wiki.novell.com and forge.novell.com and defaced the sites by posting a message stating ‘Atomic energy is our right'.

OpenSUSE.org and forge.novell.com have since been restored to normal operation and the offending images removed. The wiki.novell.com site has been taken temporarily offline.

There are no indications the attacks were serious.
