Hackers have reportedly attacked French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s official Elysee Palace website to create a video game called ‘Get Him Out’.
Under the formal banner introducing the site, Sarkozy’s cartoon image was pictured on a go-kart heading towards the gates of the palace.
For each click on the Facebook Like button beside the game, the French leader moved one step closer out into the street, the Telegraph reports.
The instructions to the game read, ‘The more you click, the faster we can get little Nicolas out!’
The Elysee Palace confirmed a hacking attack had taken place on Tuesday night, but added that the 'problem' had been fixed.
“The hackers took advantage of an old software system to temporarily re-route the welcome page,” the paper quoted a spokesman, as saying.
