Hacking of Kenya iForum

Post by admin » Mon Aug 10, 2020 1:28 am

2 days ago, https://kenyaiforum.co.ke/ was hacked. Even the admin couldn’t log in.

Today, they have un-hacked the site.

Therefore, the site is running fine. For now.

When your website is hacked by powerful state actors, there is nothing much you can do.

Even having back-ups is not enough. You can delete all files - both corrupted and uncorrupted - build the website up again from the back-up, and they will hack the site again.

Hacking of Kenya iForum

https://kenyaiforum.co.ke/ was hacked again last night. I have confirmed that it is being hacked from the hosting company side.

This means that every correction I make to the files, they are getting corrupted immediately.

Kenya iForum will therefore operate only on this domain - kenyaiforum.net - for now.

NOTE: There is a very serious infiltration of Kenya IT sector by “THEM”. This infiltration is so bad that several months ago, I decided to move the hosting of kenyaiforum.co.ke to another African country that I know is not as badly infiltrated as Kenya.

However, the suitable company I found in that country did not accept payment with the bank cards that I have.

Kenya iForum will therefore operate only on this domain - kenyaiforum.net - as I find whether there is a suitable hosting company, either in Kenya, or elsewhere.

I also hope that the problem is not with the current hosting company, but a persistent external hack attack. If they discover where the problem is, and rectifies it, the better.
