CAIRO: A group of the internet hackers announced their responsibility for disrupting the broadcasting of Basem Youssef’s episode El Bernameg on MBC Masr Channel for ten minutes on Friday.
The hacking group said on their Facebook page “Egyptian Cyber Army” that they overloaded the broadcasting server to cause the disruption during the episode.
The admin added, “I like Bassem Youssef and I am one of his fans, but it’s an indirect warning to push him to stop using sexual innuendos. It’s our own way to attract his attention.”
The admin also explained that they did not intend to stop the broadcasting, but they overloaded the server and hacked it for only 10 minutes to deliver their message. The page denied their affiliation to any political entities, and said they will perform other operations soon.
