The management of the Central Bank of Nigeria has announced that contrary to the reports making rounds that the official website was hacked, the website is secure.
This is coming after reports circulated online that the notorious hacking group, Anonymous had hacked into CBN’s website.
An announcement was made via Twitter accounts of members of ‘Anonymous’ which prompted Nigerians to check the website out and it was truly down but ‘under attack mode’.
CBN has however, debunked the rumours in a press release made available via their official Twitter page on Friday night, October 16.
As of the time of filing this report the actual truth remains unknown and the website seems to be functional again.
See photos/tweets below;
UPDATE: The Nigerian central bank website has now activated the "Under attack mode" to avoid our attacks.
The website is still being attacked and is down. If the site seems online sometimes, its just an offline version of the site offered by Cloudflare. The server is down.
