HSBC Oman's website got defaced today, by some nefarious Moroccan "hackers" and it appears some users on Nawras still can't get access at the time of blogging today. Here is the actual direct link for people trying to get onto HSBC but can't : http://www.hsbc.co.om/1/2/personal (it's working fine for people on Omantel connections)
The "hacking" (technically a defacement) has been recorded on the archive for such things, Zone-H, but it's not yet been verified as a "genuine" defacement - presumably because the admins are asleep...
Another poke in the eye for HSBC on the back of growing rumours of customer dissatisfaction after the recent merger with OIB.
Interestingly, English Sabla has been down for a similar reason for a number of days as well, apparently some Iraqi hackers have been enjoying themselves a bit too much. Oman Forum remains up, though :)
Also, it's been threatening to rain for days, and according to Accuweather it will rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. Weather Underground is predicting more or less the same, but also saying there's a 40% chance of rain today as well..... so hold off on the car washing until next week!
