“…But all your interests and your citizens in all parts of the world will be our legitimate targets! So, if you want the safety of yourselves, possessions and interests from our revenge, Depart all soldiers from our land “Mali””
Here is the Screenshot of the defaced page:
The url to the main site (http://www.centralbank.go.ke) gave a ‘Not Found’ response moments after the attack.
After the hack the website was blocked for many visitors around the world who use the site to access exchange rates information for buisness or travel purposes.
In the mean the website has been recovered and working fine but still the homepage of the website taking time to load.
