The official Facebook page of Occupational Health and Safety Authority (OHSA) Malta has seemingly been hacked and is set to temporarily be taken down.
Users following the page would have been notified on Tuesday that the page has been renamed to “Jane Doe”. Coincidentally, that is a pseudonym that tends to be used when a woman’s identity is unknown.
A few minutes later, a post was published on the page, stating that due to “technical reasons,” it will be temporarily unpublished. It is unclear whether the post was made by a member of the OHSA team. If it is the case, then it would indicate that the authority still has some level of control over the page.
The post shared a link to a new page for OHSA Malta, which is set to be updated “shortly.”
“We apologise for any inconvenience,” the statement continued.
This is not the first time that the social media account of a notable organisation or authority has been subject to a cybersecurity attack, as the Facebook page of the Malta Film Commission was hacked last July. The page had its profile picture changed from the organisation’s logo to that of a young lady, and at the time of writing, is yet to be changed.
OHSA is the authority tasked with ensuring the physical, psychological and social well-being of all workers in all workplaces are promoted and safeguarded by those who have the duty to do so.
