Nigerians claim that Anonymous, an online network known for launching cyberattacks against government institutions has hacked MultiChoice which disrupted their service, opening all channels for free.
Multichoice Nigeria, owners of DStv and GOtv, has debunked the claim that its system has been hacked and explained that the firm was only upgrading its system. More so, four days ago, they sent emails to all their subscribers, informing them of an upgrade exercise that will commence on October 17, 2020.
According to the mail sent by MultiChoice to all DSTV and GoTv subscribers, the upgrade will run from October 17, 2020, to October 19, 2020. It is necessary to improve service delivery. We want to believe multi-choice but the evidence says otherwise, so we’ll keep an open mind until we get further concrete information!
