Do you remember the guy who defaced the Google Brazil’s domain, his name is Kurio’SH and he is back in the news this time for defacing and hacking the official website of Asiana Airlines, one of the major airlines in South Korea.

The website was hacked on 19th February and is left with a deface page along with few messages against Albania and also for Serbia. These messages further mention the name of a Spanish airline Iberia Airlines. You may be thinking what Iberia airlines or even South Korea have to do with Serbia and Albania crises? The answer to that is said by the Kuroi’SH, to Hackread that his initial target was Iberia airline, but since they posed a threat to his privacy, he decided to deface the Asiana Airlines and he is motivated to “spread the word and Asiana is an airline giant.”

According to the provided deface message, “I am Sorry, Iberia Airlines, but everyone needs to understand the crime against humanity, carried out by the Albanians p**s touching Serbia – In Pristina, shame now located in Kosovo, there is a monument called NewBorn. A f***ing monument with a clear meaning: peace and a new beginning, let’s forget the past–Jesus, forgive my anger and what I will say, but if I ever end up in that city, I’ll put a bomb of this so-called monument and then destroy it.”

If you want to have a full preview of the deface page, you can check here where it was stored in Zone-h mirror as a proof of hack, read here.

When asked how Asiana Airlines website was hacked Kuroi’SH explained that “it was done through DNS hijacking from their hosting provider.” Furthermore, the hacker stated that he has nothing to do with Serbia, but he feels that truth needs to be spoken.
