Toyota, Renault, and Chevrolet’s Guatemala Websites Hacked and Defaced

Toyota, Renault, and Chevrolet websites for Guatemala have been hacked and defaced by a group of hackers known as Cyber Criminals.

The list of defaced websites by Algeriano member of the hacktivist group includes Toyota.com.gt, Renault.com.gt, and Chevrolet.com.gt with the following message:

“Hacked by Algeriano. TOYOTA & RENAULT & CHEVROLET Guatemala hacked. Cyber Criminals Was Here”

The hacker just wanted to warn the companies about how secure their sites were. We are trying to reach out to official representatives of these companies to know more about the incident. However, there was no sensitive data available on these defaced websites of Toyota, Renault, and Chevrolet.

Toyota, Renault, and Chevrolet's Guatemala Websites Hacked and Defaced

As per my knowledge, either all of these websites were hosted on the same server (maybe these companies hired the same third-party to develop their websites), or it is a targeted hack. The most likely scenario is that the sites have been exploited by a similar vulnerability, that helped hacker to deface them easily.

At the time of writing this article, the websites are still showing the defaced page and message of hackers. However, if by the time you open the site and they are working you can check the mirror links below for defaced pages.

  • http://zone-h.com/mirror/id/22025495 for www.toyota.com.gt
  • http://zone-h.com/mirror/id/22028170 for www.renault.com.gt
  • http://zone-h.com/mirror/id/22028173 for http://www.chevrolet.com.gt

It is not the very first time when Toyota’s website hacked it is consecutively getting defaced by hackers from the past three years. Hopefully, these companies will learn from their mistakes and secure their websites, and it’s a stroke of good luck; no sensitive data was available on the servers. Otherwise, private data of the users/clients could be on high risk.

Let us know what do you think about the incident in the comment section below.
