Spain’s official website for its presidency of the European Union has been recently hacked. The hacker was a prankster that was poking fun at Spain’s socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who has an uncanny
resemblance to Mr. Bean, the bumbling slapstick character, played by British actor Rowan Atkinson, and has been a running joke in Spain for years.
An official at Mr. Zapatero’s office confirmed a security breach had affected the page set up, but no information on the site had been affected, making it probably just a harmless joke by some hacker to mark Spain’s six-month presidency of the EU. Aside from putting up the picture of Mr. Bean, the page also greeted visitors with the character’s cheerful voice saying “Hi there!”
