Nicolas Sarkozy's official Elysee Palace website Hacked for 'Get Him Out' Game

Nicolas Sarkozy's official Elysee Palace website Hacked for 'Get Him Out' Game

Hackers have attacked Nicolas Sarkozy's official Elysee Palace website to create a game video game called 'Get Him Out'. Under the formal banner introducing the site, a cartoon image of the French president was pictured on a go-kart heading towards the gates of the palace. For each click on a Facebook 'like' button beside the game, the French leader moved one step closer out into the street.

The instructions to the game read: "The more you click, the faster we can get little Nicolas out!". The Elysee palace confirmed a hacking attack had taken place on Tuesday night, but that the 'problem' had been fixed by 7am on Wednesday. A spokesman added: "The hackers took advantage of an old software system to temporarily re-route the welcome page."
