New Jersey School Hacked With ISIS Propaganda

Hackers invaded a New Jersey school district’s website Monday, posting radical extremist and ISIS propaganda on the site.

The server was plastered with pictures of Saddam Hussein, ISIS phrases, and video. “I Love Islamic state,” the bottom of the website read.

Hackers were able to take over multiple New Jersey school websites by accessing the cloud-based website provider¬†Schooldesk.net, which operates the district’s websites. Pictures of the hacking activity were posted on the Citizens of Bloomfield, New Jersey Facebook page¬†at 12:55 a.m., and then again at 6:07 a.m.

“Clearly a hacker with a twisted sense of humor,” wrote one of the Facebook group’s members.

The posts have since been removed.

Authorities have no information thus far about the hackers and how they were able to access the Schooldesk.net’s account.

The Bloomingfield School District website is back running normally, and did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
