While talking about the website hack, the spokesperson of the Trump campaign Tim Murtaugh says,
“website was defaced and we are working with law enforcement authorities to investigate the source of the attack. There was no exposure to sensitive data because none of it is actually stored on the site. The website has been restored.”
Gabriel Lorenzo Greschler, a Twitter user, posted a tweet and said he saw the website was seized. A message on the website donaldjtrump.com reads, “The site was seized.” And the other message you can read in the given picture.
Earlier also, Donald Trump’s Twitter account was hacked. A security researcher said that the Twitter account of trump was accessed by guessing the password. He also said that the account was not protected, and because of them, the hacker got access to his account.
Just a few days ago, Trump said that nobody could be hacked. His words were,
“Nobody gets hacked. To get hacked you need somebody with 197 IQ and he needs about 15% of your password”.
The hacker claim to have inside information on the “origin of covid-19” and other information about Trump. They also provided two Monero addresses. It is a cryptocurrency that is difficult to track but easy to send.
One of the addresses was them who wanted the classified information, and the other one was for them who wanted to keep it as a secret.
The website was back to its original content after 30 minutes. No other evidence is there on what hackers have accessed.
