CYBER BREACH: Teenager hacks into Spain´s Government Infrastructure
Posted By: Iain Fraser - Cybersecurity Journalist Gibraltar

11 April 2023

A 19-year-old hacker named only as "Alcasec" is reported to have breached Spain's national security including the National Police & Health Authorities as well as, Spanish TV Channel Tele5 and Burger King. 

This character "Alcasec" who has an army of followers among the murky world of Cyber-crime and the Dark Web began to hack into the computer systems of companies such as Burger King, where, after modifying passwords, forced a shop in Madrid to give away free hamburgers to customers, publicising the "offer" on Instagram. 

His latest move was to hack the well-known Punto Neutro of the General Council of the Judiciary, a database where information from the tax agency, Guardia Civil and National Police is cross-referenced.

I suspect we shall hear from "Alcasec" again!
