The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Website Remains Offline Despite Denial
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) website remains offline since I noted many hours ago that it was down. It is over 48 hours here and the site remains offline despite the public notice where CBN claimed its website was never hacked. In short, it has even lost SSL. I think it is time to put this alert: CBN, your Cloudfare configuration was not done well. Your permission rules are wrong and you are blocking many legitimate traffics. You need to go back into Cloudfare setup and change the permission rules. Anonymous, a hacker group, claimed it touched the site as part of the #ENDSARS protest solidarity.
The Anonymous group, an online network known for launching cyber attacks against government institutions, has claimed responsibility for bringing down the website of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Largely, the central bank of Nigeria is cut-out of the global internet as at 18th October 2020
The move was taken in solidarity with the #EndSARS protesters.
