SeniorAu.com.au hacked and off-line
The comprehensive news and research website for older Australians was hacked yesterday and put offline.
9 January 2012 (Brisbane, Australia) The SeniorAu (SeniorAu.com.au) website was attacked by hackers late Wednesday morning Australian time and put off line.
The hacker left a message in place of the home page inferring that the website had been hacked. All of the SeniorAu web news services were brought down and the site is inaccessible.
All attempts to restore the the site were unsuccessful and it continues to be unavailable.
Further attempts will be made to restore the site, with prospects of success at this stage not looking promising.
SeniorAu is a non-commercial, non-profit site providing the only up to date on-line news service on major issues and government policy for older Australians.
SeniorAu's intention is to produce information which is relevant and interesting to seniors. Much of what affects seniors is based on, or is influenced by Government policies at the Commonwealth, State and Territory level. Consequently, a proportion of the content of SeniorAu will talk about government policy and government performance related to seniors' matters.
There is a constant flow of serious and topical information being produced by professional / academic researchers and organisations, including welfare organisations, who have an interest in a wide range of issues affecting seniors, their life styles and quality of life. SeniorAu will highlight and draw on research papers and reports to cover issues that matter to seniors.
SeniorAu will also publicise notable events such as state or national conferences which are pertinent to seniors and are organised by reputable organisations.
Very importantly, SeniorAu wants to hear from seniors who have issues which are the responsibility of the Commonwealth, State or Territory governments. Sometimes important issues should be being handled by these levels of government but are not. We would like to hear about them too.
