A group that touts love for ISIS and hatred for Israel hacked into several Ohio state government websites, blaring forth messages of denouncement for President Donald Trump and vowing to take revenge on America for intervention into Middle East affairs.
New York government sites were also hit by the hackers.
The group’s called “Team System DZ,” and in January, the same group, composed of what USA Today described as “anti-Israeli Arab teenagers,” hacked into a Virginia government site.
Most recently, the group’s hack posted this message to Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s webpage: “You will be held accountable Trump, you and all your people for every drop of blood flowing in Muslim countries.”
The Daily Caller has more:
“Ominous anti-Trump and pro-ISIS messages appeared Sunday afternoon on Ohio and Long Island, New York government websites after hackers reportedly found their way into official networks.
“According to Columbus NBC4, a group that calls itself “Team System Dz” hacked official state websites of: Gov. John Kasich, First Lady Karen Kasich, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, the Office of Workforce Transformation, the Casino Control Commission, Medicaid, the Office of Health Transformation and LeanOhio. …
“The online posting was signed, “Team System Dz,” and concluded with “I love the Islamic state.”
“A link to the System Dz Facebook page was posted as well. The New York town of Brookhaven, Long Island was hit with a similar hack on Sunday, according to The NY Post.”
Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel reacted to the postings with a bold post of his own on Facebook that bluntly asked Americans to wake up to the realities of Islam.
He wrote: “Wake up freedom-loving Americans … Radical Islam infiltrating the heartland.”
Government officials said information and data were not compromised during the hack, and that authorities were working to restore the systems.
