    Yes, you read that correctly. Our president has just had his personal details hacked into.

    It’s not everyday you hear hackers breach government but it has happened to Ramaphosa. Our president has just had some very important personal details revealed. The hackers managed to identify the private IP addresses of the government’s servers, their domains, and Internet service providers.

    So, just who are these hackers? They are known as SpiderLog$, according to mybroadband. They have managed to access the details of a loan Ramaphosa took out with one of our top four banks back in the 2000’s. They were able to obtain his personal details including where he lives, his I.D and cellphone number. The hackers aim at exposing weaknesses in South Africa’s security systems.

    “South Africa is a playground for hackers because anyone is able to map your country’s digital infrastructure,” the group stated on SundayTimes.

    SpiderLog$ claim to have sent screenshots to the same publication. Proving that they could access our sensitive military and intelligence data. This is a rather terryinging thought. So should we be worried?

    Well… yes and no! Cybersecurity firms have warned us about the vulnerabilities discovered by this hacking group and how it could lead to attackers intercepting sensitive military and intelligence information. However, thankfully SpiderLog$ only seem interested in exposing this rather than using it to cause danger to our country.
