How do they know these were hackers?

Posted by Helen Sunday, August 12, 2007

Hackers and spammers are a real problem on the internet and don't we all know that. However, this story makes me wonder.

Apparently some hackers, one of whom may have been Turkish, managed to get on to the official website of the United Nations and displayed somewhat incoherent and ungrammatical messages that attacked US and Israeli policies in the Middle East. Well, more or less attacked.

The question is, given the way the UN and its various organizations such as the Human Rights Council or the United Nations Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA) usually talk and given the sort resolutions they pass and pronouncements they make, how does anyone know these were hackers.
