Trump website hacked

The campaign website of President Donald Trump was hacked on Tuesday night. 

As per the details, the hackers hacked the website on Tuesday and displayed an anti-Trump message.

“The world has had enough of the fake-news spread daily by president Donald j trump”, the hackers wrote.

Hackers claimed that full access to trump and relatives” was achieved or “most internal and secret conversations strictly classified information” were exposed.

The spam lasted for just half an hour. Campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh said that no data had been stolen and the site has been restored.

The messages on the website also claimed the poster had compromising information about the president and asked for donations to two Monero cryptocurrency accounts (a cryptocurrency is a form of alternative online financial transaction that is difficult to track).

The hack was first noticed by Gabriel Lorenzo Greschler on Twitter. It took place after 4 pm local time. The hackers appearing to have gained access to the web server backend and inserted a long stretch of obfuscated JavaScript-producing a parody of the FBI “this site has been seized” message, which appeared over the normal content.

“the world has had enough of the fake-news spread daily by president Donald j trump,” the new site read. “it is time to allow the world to know the truth.”
