Did ISIS Supporters Hack U.S. Websites Over the Weekend? FBI Investigates

The FBI is investigating the hacking of several business websites in the U.S. that showed a black ISIS flag on the homepage.

NBC News reports that the home pages showed the words, “hacked by ISIS, we are everywhere,” with a link to a Facebook page that doesn’t exist. What appeared to be an Arabic song played in the background.

The targets included Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, owned by NASCAR star Tony Stewart, and a Goodwill center in St. Louis, among others.

“The FBI is aware of the reported incidents and is contacting the impacted parties,” the agency said.

But some suspect a hoax.

“There are no indications that the individuals behind these latest hacks have any real connection to ISIS, and these defacements have taken place amid a spate of recent attacks where ordinary hackers have cynically used far-fetched references to ISIS as a means of attracting media attention,” Evan Kohlmann of Flashpoint Intelligence, a global security firm and NBC News consultant, said.
