A mischievous hacker has defaced the Department for Education website — with a news article ‘revealing’ that the education secretary plans to teach the nation’s children on his own:
“EDUCATION MINISTER Michael Gove today unveiled new plans to single-handedly teach every child in the UK.
“Gather around kids!” he said, while ushering every single British child into one cavernous class-room.
“According to reports, one small girl in the class began to cry. “Aw, do you miss your Mummy?” asked Gove, gently. “Well, Mummy has fundamentally failed to provide for your education so forget about her.”
“Texuna don’t have any secure way for people to report flaws to them and, when notified, struggled to find someone who could take responsibility.”
According to TES the department and Texuna took A MONTH to fix the security flaw and take down the article — even after they were informed of the hack.
In fairness, that’s still quicker than their FOI response time.
