- Kabarak is a Christian university but the hacker has taken over the page making weird posts.
- The last post by the official university was made on April 18 showing students during the exam period.
A suspected hacker who took over Kabarak University Facebook page has given his demands, before returning the page.
The suspected Indonesian teenager has demanded to be given a certain amount of money before he surrenders the page.
"I also have another option you guys just give me 500 dollars and I'll bring this page back, the offer is cheap for a big university," he said.
At the current dollar to Kenyan shillings exchange rate, the amount translates to about Sh68,000.
Kabarak is a Christian university but the hacker has taken over the page making weird posts.
The last post by the official university was made on April 18 showing students during the exam period.
"Silent streets and focused minds. Kabarak University is known for its academic excellence and tranquil environment," the post reads.
But two days ago the hacker changed the profile photo and started posting unexplained words and photos.
On Saturday the hacker posted a cryptic message on the page which has 46,000 followers.
"Hello everyone here I just want to clarify about this account that was hacked, to be honest, I was just having fun so don't take the posts I publish seriously, once again I'm sorry," he said.
Hours later he warned that he would not return the Kabarak University's account.
"I will not return this account, but I challenge all of you to reclaim this account immediately. Regards a student from one of Jakarta's IT-based high schools," he added.
n a statement, the Nakuru-based university disowned the posts saying cybercriminals had invaded their Facebook page.
The varsity also disassociated themselves from the fishy posts saying Kabarak remains a Christian university.
"We regret to inform the public that our official Facebook page has been compromised by a group of cybercriminals. As a result, the criminals are using it to spread malicious and misleading images and information contrary to the biblical Christian values of Kabarak University. We want to assure our stakeholders and the general public that we are taking all necessary measures to regain control of our page," the statement reads.
