Kampala – Nile Breweries Uganda Limited website has today been hacked with the hackers demanding that the company produces a beer whose formula has been kept on its servers.
In a statement signed by Onapito Ekolomoit, the Legal & Corporate Affairs Director at Nile Breweries, the company said: “Nile Breweries Ltd., would like to confirm that we have seen the video circulating on our website this morning at our Head Office in Luzira, Kampala. We are taking this matter very seriously and are moving quickly to establish the details.”
“We have mobilised a response team and will provide further updates as soon as the information we receive can be verified,” he added in a statement dated November 26th, 2019.
The website currently displays a blurred picture of a man covering his head in a hoodie.
“I have gone through your servers and discovered you have been sitting on beer formula. So here’s my demand: produce the beer immediately or the formula goes public. You have 24 hours,” the hacker said in a disguised voice.
Nile Breweries produces brands like Club Beer, Nile Special, Eagle Lager and Eagle Extra.
