A top cop website was
hacked - by a monster-type creature!
The cheeky hackers broke into London's Metropolitan Police
recruitment website, and posted a picture of a cuddly toy
on its front page.
And beneath the picture of the green stripy animal they
added taunting comments.
The message posted by "Officer Brobee" referred
to the Scotland Yard's SO15 counter-terrorism unit.
It said: "OH HAI GUYS do joo wanna bes a policeman
"I see that teh so15 anti-terrorism anti-lulz police
are hiring more incompetent nervy edgy socipaths to make
London's streets just that little bit safer!"
"OH LULZ. SHOUTS TO l0g1kal for being such a leet dude
and to LULKITTEH for being so fancy."
A spokesman for the Met said they were aware of the hack.
"We are aware of an unauthorised image and text having
been placed on the Met Careers internet site," a statement
issued by the force said.
"The Met Careers site is managed by an external company
who are responsible for its upkeep.
"We will discuss this with the service provider at
the earliest possible time."
The embarrassing message and cuddly monster were later removed.
