Teenager Hacks Police Webpage


A 17-year-old hacker has tampered the Belgian Federal police webpage. The hacker has 'defaced' the site by erasing its front page and placing instead of it the following message: "17-year-old cracked the Belgian police webpage. Internet protection of your site shows an obvious lack of competence by police officers. Authorities, revise the staff of the police - it will bring its profits!"

The police are inspecting the case. If the teenage hacker will be found, he is likely to be charged of computer fraud and even a penal case could be started.

Ha, it doesn't take much skill at all. I think that the intense misunderstanding of knowledge at certain professional levels leads society, (in general), to believe that what this kid did was criminal. He could have easily done much worse, assuming he had admin access to their CMS, or worse, root access to the server.

He didn't really "Hack" it, he "Cracked" it, which is what most developers hire people to do with programs like Firewalls and Operating Systems to find flaws and loopholes.

I don't think he should be punished.

"If the teenage hacker will be found, he is likely to be charged of computer fraud" - If anything, the hacker should be praised for showing them that they weren't secure, or would they rather have a mad hacker delete their entire database?

I agree with Baphomet, when police staff sucks you know justice is bull.

More power to him? You're an idiot for even thinking that something like this is to be praised at. This will just create more shit for you as a citizen if you lived in Belgium.
