ISIS hackers, and UK MPs, use tech to exploit Charlie Hebdo massacre
According to the Daily Mirror, a number of official websites connected to French municipalities were hacked at the end of last week to coincide with the Charlie Hebdo massacre and the hostage taking at the Jewish supermarket. The newspaper reported that the home screens of websites belonging to the towns of Jouy-le-Moutier, Piscop, Goussainville, Val D'Oise and Ezanville (all surrounding Paris) were defaced with a Jihadist ISIS black flag and a message which translates as "The Islamic State Stay Inchallah, Free Palestine, Death to France, Death to Charlie." The hacker concerned declares himself to be an Algerian using the name L'APoca-Dz, and is also associated with a number of previous defacements of Israeli connected websites with anti-semitic messages.
