The Ministry of Labour and Social Security is a static website that provides public information and does not require users to sign-in, therefore, we do not think that sensitive information like usernames and passwords have been stolen by the hackers. And, it seems the hackers did it for bragging rights based on the message they have posted on the vandalized website.

We will continue to update this article as we get more information.

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers or other information in samples on this website may have been impersonated or spoofed.

    Hello. Hackers try catching duppies in the country parts of Jamaica. This is more exciting than hacking. No problem.

    These hackers want something to do. They need to channel their knowledge on something else. Something that will create a greater good.
