Kenya: Kenyan bank website hacked

Kenya-Byte writes about the Kenyan bank whose website was hacked recently: “Equity Bank’s website was defaced last week. Safaricom’s website is suspiciously unavailable. There is some mischief going around.
The cracker who defaced Equity’s site might not have caused serious loss to the bank apart from denting the reputations of the in-house IT team. However Bongeni Jo (let’s baptise him so – after one of his calling cards), exposes a security lapse that would have had more serious implications.”
