Website of Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU Hacked and Defaced


Recommended Posts


An Iranian hacker that uses the online moniker “le4derofh4ck” (Leader of Hack) has breached the systems of the New York University. As a result of the breach, he has managed to deface the official site of the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University (apa.nyu.edu).

Cyber-N reports that the hacker wanted to breach NYU’s main site, but security systems didn't allow him to do it. So, instead, he defaced the Asian/Pacific/American Institute’s website.

“We love Iran. Your security is very low,” the hacker wrote on the defaced page next to a flag of Iran.

NYU representatives quickly pulled the plug on the Asian/Pacific/American Institute site. At the time of writing, the website is offline.

I’ve reached out to the Asian/Pacific/American Institute in hopes that they can provide clarifications on what happened. I’ll update this post in case they respond.
