Those who logged on to the Regina International Airport website got a little surprise Wednesday morning.

Instead of planes, staring back at site visitors was a picture of a man with a mask, similar to the one worn by the lead character in 2005’s V for Vendetta movie. Underneath read a message taunting web administration its site wasn’t secure.

Look Matters oversees yqr.ca and spokesperson Rob Arnold said they do have an idea of who may have hacked in.


“It looks like from what we’ve been able to tell the Anonymous Group,” he said.

The group is known around the world for hacking into sites including government agencies and major security corporations.

“The software system that we use and other platforms use just happened to have a hole in it,” Arnold said. “The fix is knowing where the hole is, patching it, and ensuring that the security updates are done.”

Arnold said at about 10:30 a.m. the website was back up and running normally.

No major problems are being reported.

Yeah that's what she said .. but when you get the message ''Sorry Admin. Your security is weak''

Maybe they should start by having all their employees change their passwords

A good admin would be all over this.
