Hackers Deface LA County Website with Pro-ISIS Messages

Network intrusion

Hackers this week defaced a Los Angeles County government website, posting what seem to be pro-ISIS messages, ABC7 reports.

The county joins a string of other state entities recently targeted with the same message, which said, "You will be held accountable Trump, you and all your people for every drop of blood flowing in Muslim countries."

A hacking group called Team System DZ is reportedly the culprit, but it’s unclear whether it has actual ties to ISIS.

The message was posted June 27 on the county board of supervisors website. Officials say no personal data was compromised from county computers.

ABC7 also said there is no indication the Los Angeles County hack is related to the Petya ransomware that has swept the world.
