City Of Killeen’s Government Website Hacked by Jack Sparrow
Some visitors to the website www.killeentexas.gov laughed out loud this morning when Turkey's President Tayyip Erdoğan showed up on the site instead of the local content they expected.
The group "Turk Hack" is taking credit for "hacking" the city's website, yet they try to blame the joke on Captain Jack Sparrow. Complete with lightning bolts and "Pirates of the Caribbean" music, this marks the second time the group has claimed to hack the city's page. The first time happened back in May of this year and the group who took credit last time called themselves TurkHackTeam.org.
Earlier today the city's web provider OIC Group began working on fixing the issue, and reportedly had the site back online for a while. By late Monday afternoon, President Erdoğan was back and so was the theme music.
The situation is still being looked into. No further details are available yet. If you visit the city's website, please be advised it is not known if it is safe to do so at this time. Click at your own risk.
