Hackers attack government websites in Ohio, Maryland and New York with threat to Trump

Several official websites were blocked with a message against President Donald Trump by a group allegedly partisan of the Islamic State group (ISIS). By Monday some government websites were still down.

The page of the governor of Ohio, John Kasich, is among the pages that were attacked this weekend and were blocked with a threatening message against President Donald Trump supposedly by a group sympathetic to the group Islamic State (ISIS).

The text published on the page of the Republican governor said: “You must be accountable Trump, you and all your people for every drop of blood spilled in Muslim countries.”

The message, which appeared in golden letters on a black background, is signed by a group called Team System Dz and added at the end: “I love the Islamic State.”

The same text infiltrated government digital sites in Brookhaven, New York, as well as on the Howard County website in Maryland, reported The Associated Press, and Univison News found Monday they were still out of service.

In the past, this group was also awarded similar computer attacks in Richland County, Wisconsin, as well as in Aberdeen, Scotland, and Sweden.

Tom Hoyt, director of communications for the Ohio Department of Administrative Services, confirmed the hack.

All the affected servers were disconnected and we are investigating how the hackers disfigured these websites,” he said.

“We are also working with law enforcement agencies to better understand what happened,” Fox said in a statement.

In Ohio, the website of First Lady Karen Kasich, the Medicaid program, the Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections of Ohio and the Casino Control Commission were also attacked.
