LIMA – A hacker attacked the Peruvian National Police Web site over the weekend and challenged the law enforcement agency to catch him “if you can.”
The cyber attack occurred Sunday morning and was mounted by a hacker who identified himself as “Jardha” and said he was from the southern city of Arequipa, located about 1,200 kilometers (745 miles) from Lima.
“Catch me if you can,” the hacker said in a message posted on the police Web site.
The hacker, who said he found a weakness in the Web site’s security, left some e-mail addresses to taunt police.
The National Police did not comment on the incident, but the Web site was back up later in the day on Sunday. EFE
