Anonymous Brazil Hacks Football Club for Hiring Goalkeeper

  • 407

The ever so popular hacktivist Anonymous with the help of its counterparts in Brazil has hacked the official website of the Boa Esporte which is a second division football club in state of Minas Gerais. Their website was defaced not just once but twice, the hackers left a deface page along with a message explaining why they have done the attack on them.

The reason for targeting the Boa Esporte is its recent initiative of hiring a goalkeeper named Bruno Fernandes das Dores de Souza who was sent to prison for only brutally murdering his ex-girlfriend and his mother of his kid Eliza Samudio in 2010 but also feeding her to his dogs.

This Fernandes is more famous by his first name Bruno and was sentenced to prison for about 22 years, but due to the legal technicality, he was released last month. After this, Boa Esporte hired him. Bruno still claims to be innocent of the crime but the hacker community thought otherwise and they decided to hack Esporte’s website and present some messages like “Has Bruno told where is Eliza’s body?”.


The site is then hacked for the second time in one day with messages against domestic violence against the women in Brazil. The hackers have also left pictures of Bruno and Eliza as a deface page along with statistics of women in Brazil killed since 2013.

The picture of Bruno is a magazine cover in which he’s urging people to “Let him play” while the picture of Eliza is a result of photoshop in which she’s shown saying “I would like to see my son grow.”

In must be noted that hackers are not the only community criticizing the hiring of Bruno. In fact, people on social media in Brazil also opposed the decision urging companies to stop sponsoring Boa Esporte. As a result, the food supplementing company Nutrends broke off its sponsorship of the club.
