Catholic Newspapers Site Hacked; Anti-Christian Message Displayed

Country: Ireland

Date of incident: September 12, 2011

The homepage of the Irish Catholic website was hacked and replaced with a blue and white screen which read “Site off-line. You. Got. Taken”. The hacker’s message went on to say “And wish you to continue beliveing [sic] in your false religion”. and: "Gotta love false hope."

The page was offline for several hours. Irish Central reports that "Earlier this year 300 subscribers details from 'The Irish Field', owned by the same publishing house as 'The Catholic', were hacked and released." Read full story at:
