We just got a tip that the Central African Building Society (CABS) website www.cabs.co.zw has been hacked. Visiting the website right now loads the screen we have captured here:
CABS is Zimbabwe’s largest mortgage lender. The building society is a subsidiary of Old Mutual Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe’s largest life assurance organisation.
So far it looks that the hacking is basically the defacing of their website and not likely any deeper than that in terms of the payload. Our checks show the website uses the Joomla content management system.
We are told CABS has been notified and they are in the process of rectifying the problem, which apparently involves moving hosts and activating and even changing sites.
