CBN makes clarification on alleged hacked website
The Central Bank of Nigeria has dismissed reports that its website was hacked on Friday.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that a decentralised international ‘hacktivist’ group “Anonymous” on Friday night claimed responsibility for bringing down the website of the Apex Bank on Friday night.
Checks revealed the website displaying the message, “500 – Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.”
The glitch made the apex bank’s website go on and off intermittently.
But, CBN in a statement on its Twitter page on Friday maintained that contrary to reports, its website was safe.
It urged Nigerians to avoid peddling fake news as its website is adequately protected and there was no cause for alarm.
The statement reads, “Contrary to claims on social media alleging that the website of the Central Bank of Nigeria has been breached by malicious persons, we wish to state categorically that our website is secure.
“We also wish to advise the online community to desist from peddling fake news aimed at undermining the integrity of the CBN, which is our collective asset.”
