One of the largest British fishing shop website has been redirected to a porn site

Angling Direct’s Twitter page also worked strangely, with a message shared there claiming that Pornhub had bought the company.

Hacker Attack Angling Direct to reach the UK, one of the island nation’s largest online fishing shops, wrote the BBC. The incident took place on Friday, and the operator immediately notified the authorities.

As a result of the attack, the fishing shop’s website was redirected to an adult film portal, while the company’s Twitter site claimed that Pornhub had purchased the shop. An entry even described that.

now the porn site has all the data on anglers, but of course, that wasn’t true either.

The attack may seem like a joke, but the BBC said the target was damaged. It can be assumed that the intruders got some sensitive information because they also attached an e-mail address to their message. This usually happens when hackers demand a ransom for the data they obtain. I don’t know if that’s still the case.

Several employees run angling Direct’s site, so it is possible that they were first hacked and then hijacked by the company’s interface.
