Arts Website Recovers From Cyber Attack

KSAL StaffApril 27, 2015

The website of a Topeka arts districts has been restored after it was hacked.

The main page of the North Topeka Arts District site was replaced last week with an image of a masked man holding a firearm. A message in garbled English read, in part, “I am Muslim & I love jihad. I love ISIS 3.”

Brookings Institution analyst and nonresident fellow J.M. Berger is the co-author of a book on Islamic State extremists. He said website defacements generally tend to go where there are known security vulnerabilities. Messages such as the one placed on the arts district website are less likely to be placed for strategic messaging reasons.
