NFU denies hackers have accessed cull website and changed key records

Last Friday, Innocent Badger published a post which said the Carcase Management System (CMS) website run by the union, which contains the personal data of people involved in the cull as well as information relating to badger setts and culls, had been hijacked.

 

The group claim to have been accessing the site since February, ‘pushing deeper and further into huge piles of data including crime reports, shooters’ identities, locations of kills and email addresses of those involved’.

 

“On Tuesday, the NFU IT people finally spotted us and have since made some minor adjustments to try and protect the site,” the post read.

“But unfortunately for them it is too little, too late. We are in the system and will continue to edit and scrape data.

 

“We were also changing records (including crime reports) as they come in. This year’s data on kills sent to Natural England will be based on our false reports, making the continuation of the cull completely pointless.”

 

The Innocent Badger post was accompanied by what appeared to be screenshots of the website and the email addresses of those involved in the cull.

 

The NFU refused to comment, other than to say it did not recognise the claims.
