Self-Touted ISIS Hackers Strike Curtin Singapore’s School Website

Hackers claiming to be from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) attacked the website of private university Curtin Singapore yesterday (10 Mar).

The website was hacked to display a picture of the terrorist group’s flag, and the words, “”Hacked by Islamic State (ISIS) – We Are Everywhere”.

It also included a link to a Facebook page which has since been removed by Facebook.

Users who entered the site were also treated to music played in Arabic.

Curtin took website offline following the cyber intrusion.

It has since been restored.

Besides Curtin Singapore, several websites around the world were hacked into over the weekend, and displayed similar words and a picture of the group’s flag.
