Anonghost, pro-Palestinian hackers, last week hacked and defaced one of the subdomains of American Express (cto.americanexpress.com).
The hack occurred under the protest operation #OpGov, in support of Palestine. This operation involved the defacing of government websites all over the world. The following message had also been posted on hacked websites:
“Website Hacked By AnonGhost Team \!/ ~~Death To All Jews~~ | ~~Viva Hamas,Qassam~~
