The website was also hacked in December 2017

The official website of Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation, commonly called Petrobangla, has been hacked.

The suspected hackers named “N33LOB33,” wrote “Your All Data Are Safe” on the website, (https://petrobangla.org.bd/), around 5pm on Sunday.

The hacked website had messages:  “Thanks to:| Fir3 [email protected] | izocin | Religious Hunter | Dark Coder | Legion Bomb3r [email protected] [email protected] | Optimus Rotar| Cyber Missilz | ./MrFrank | L10N M1N1 | Mad Sn1per.”

“Respect: [email protected] | Bangladesh Cyber Army | Team_CC | BD Grey Hat Hackers | 3xp1r3 Cyber Army | Bangladesh Script Kiddie Hackers | Blacksmith Hackers Team |,” the texts read.

Tariqul Islam Khan, manager of the public relation wing at Petrobangla, said the state-run corporation shut down its server soon after the hacking.

“We are yet to confirm who hacked the website; it will be clear during office hours tomorrow (Monday), once the website is restored,” Tariqul told the Dhaka Tribune.

The Petrobangla website was hacked previously on December 19, 2015.
