It is such a small thing that I didn't even find an article in English. Basically, the site that offers information about the bus lines in Curitiba,
a city in the south of Brazil, was hacked this afternoon. The people in charge have regained control and posted something about it.
Message about the hack (in Portuguese)
They keep it very simple, despite being a bit long. They say they have no doubt it was done by IS, mentioning an article published by
The Columbus Dispatch
Then, there's a brief explanation about the hacks going on around the world.
They also say that this hack had nothing to do with a bus that was set on fire early this week, since the hackers didn't bother claiming that action
as theirs (a bit optimistic, but I agree the two things are not related - people have been burning buses in Brazil for a couple years now whenever
they get unhappy with the government).
Finally, they finish the message by explaining why their site was somewhat an easy prey, that they have to up their security and then make fun of the
fact that, as soon as they put the site back up in its normal version, the first ad to show up was an antivirus one to protect both computers AND
So... nothing huge, but I figured some people here might be interested in knowing about it?
