Panasonic China Website Hacked and Redirected

The official Chinese website of Panasonic, the world renowned manufacturer of electronics and high-tech gadgets, has suffered a data breach.

The hackers altered the site’s main page and added a Refresh Meta tag that redirected users to another location where their message was posted, The Hacker News informs.
Currently the website still redirects visitors to the website that reveals the name of the hacker, Q-R3ST.
Judging by the defaced site, the black hat is from India and part of a hacker group called Vatan.
The initial source reports that the DarkDevilz Crew is behind the breach, which may mean that after one group hacked and defaced the site, another hacker collective may have gained access to the defacement site and claimed credit for the operation.
Regardless of who is responsible for the breach, hopefully Panasonic moves to fix the security flaws.
