The attack is part of an ongoing global defacement campaign perpetuated by a Brazilian hacktivist group known as VandaTheGod. Since end of July, the hacktivists have defaced more than 300 webpages belonging to government agencies and education institutions in countries such as the US, Portugal, Switzerland and Brazil.
