Pro-Islamic State cyber group hack Australian websites

 

A GROUP of pro-Islamic State (IS) hackers have gone on a website defacement spree, breaking into the websites of more than 20 Australian small businesses.

The hacking group, which calls itself the United Cyber Caliphate, has hacked the sites leaving a message and a picture.

Most of the websites that were attacked were tyre and wheel retailers.

"In the name of Allah, we are United Cyber Caliphate. Obey Islamic State. Your system is fail. Islamic State #rules," the picture read.

It is unknown why the pro-IS group targeted the websites, or what it has against Australian tyre retailers.
