The official website of the spokesperson for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was apparently invaded by hackers who tampered many pages with an anti-war slogan.

Two statements that should have been on the webpage were replaced by four identical sentences apparently announcing that the hacking was a protest against Israel and the US.

"That is CyberProtest Hey Ysrail and USA don't kill children and other people Peace for ever No war," said the hackers, who only identified them as "kerem125 M0sted and Gsy".

The slogan also appeared on many other WebPages, including those that display the UN chief's daily quote, his speeches and the deputy secretary-general's statements.
