Following the recent tempering of websites in the country by the group, Anonymous, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disclosed that there were attempts to breach its website.

Anonymous, a legion of hackers, had claimed responsibility for hitting the agency’s internet platform.

The group also tempered with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) website and threatened to target more.

The anonymous group say their actions are in support of the EndSARS protests in the country.

EFCC, however, assured that its website was not hacked.

On Monday, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC Head of Media, noted that the compromise efforts were recorded over the weekend.

The spokesman blamed “cybercriminals” for a near breach of its privacy.

Uwujaren said the attempts were successfully repelled and that the website “is up and running”.
