Pro-ISIS Hackers Hijack 800 US Schools’ Sites With Saddam Hussein Photo, ‘I Love Islamic State’ Message
If they’re able to get into school computer systems, worse than this hack could be coming.
The Islamic State has vowed to murder Americans in their homes.
If the personal data of students was not secure, ISIS could have gotten hold of it.
This is yet another indication of how we are at war.
We are under attack, and most of our elected officials are indifferent to that fact, and busy themselves claiming that those who are attacking us don’t really mean what they say, and aren’t going to do what they tell us they are going to do, and so we don’t really need to take any serious steps to counter their activities.
We can only hope that these officials are right.
Because if they aren’t, it’s going to be a bloodbath, when the jihadis turn on all these people who have denounced “fearmongering” and whined about “islamophobia.”
“Pro-Isis hackers hijack 800 US schools’ sites with Saddam Hussein photo, ‘I love Islamic State’ message,” by Hyacinth Mascarenhas, International Business Times, November 7, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Hackers managed to hijack and deface hundreds of websites across the US to post pro-ISIS messages, images of Saddam Hussein and a recruitment video. SchoolDesk, the Atlanta, Georgia-based web hosting company servicing these sites, confirmed the attack. A hacking group going by the name “Team System Dz” claimed responsibility for the hack that took place around 4am EST on Monday (6 November).
The main page on the compromised sites displayed a black background with photo of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein along with the Arabic message seen on the Isis flag that reads: “There is no god but Allah” and “Mohammed is the Messenger of God.”
Further down the page, the hackers posted a message in English that read: “I love Islamic State.”
SchoolDesk said it “immediately responded” to the situation and took all the compromised websites offline “until the situation could be fully researched.”
“Our technical staff discovered that a small file had been injected into the root of one of the SchoolDesk websites, redirecting approximately 800 school and district websites to an iFramed YouTube page containing an audible Arabic message, unknown writing and a picture of Saddam Hussein,” SchoolDesk said in a statement.
“Although the exact method and point of intrusion is not yet fully known (possibly an SQL injection or through a user account with a weak password), we have added multiple layers of redundant protection to prevent this from happening again, as well as taking many additional methods to research how this was accomplished and by whom.”…
