The official website of whistleblowing platform WikiLeaks was hacked Thursday morning by OurMine, a Saudi Arabia based hacking group. The hackers left a deface page along with a message on the homepage of the website explaining why it was defaced.

According to the deface message: “Hi, it’s OurMine (Security Group), don’t worry we are just testing your…. blablablab, oh wait, this is not a security test! Wikileaks, remember when you challenged us to hack you?”

“Anonymous, remember when you tried to dox us with fake information for attacking WikiLeaks [sic]?” the message continues. “There we go! One group beat you all! #WikileaksHack lets get it trending on twitter [sic]!”

Here is a full preview of the deface page that site's visitors witnessed early Thursday morning:


Remember, OurMine previous hacks include social media accounts of HBO, Game of Thrones, as well as Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s Quora page. A full list of OurMine's hacks is available here.
