Hackers invade Brazilian president's campaign website
font size    

Hackers on Wednesday invaded the website of Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and the ruling Workers Party, leaving offensive messages against the party and Lula.

A group of hackers, named BIOS TEAM, altered the party's red star symbol and depicted it in flames, with the slogan "no more of this shit" emblazoned across it.

Lula is expected to win a second term in the presidential elections to be held in October. Latest polls indicate that he would likely garner 49 percent of the votes. His rival Geraldo Alckmin ranked second with 25 percent of the votes.

As background to the text, the hackers used images of Brazil's national flag and the national football team. They committed several grammatical mistakes in the text, which was only nine lines long.

"Some countries suffer wars, others terrorist attacks, some terrible earthquakes, others from tsunamis, hurricanes and tornados, and we, from Brazil, have Lula," the hackers' message reads, calling Lula "a disgrace."

The message enlists the so-called "seven plagues" of Lula, in reference to the political scandals and the crises in some sectors of the economy.

The hackers said that they opted to vote for the opposition candidate,Alckmin, from the Brazilian Social Democratic Party.

On Wednesday, the Workers Party's press office said that computer technicians were still trying to discover how the hackers broke into the site, and was working on restoring the site's news service web page, which was damaged.
