Hackers defaced former President Donald Trump’s presidential website Monday and redirected visitors to a page by Turkish hacktivist group RootAyyildiz who urged readers to “not forget Allah.”
"Do not be like those who forgot Allah, so Ally made them forget themselves. Here they really went astray," the site read.
The message was in Turkish. The suspected hacker has been blamed for briefly defacing President Joe Biden’s official campaign website in November 2020.
Biden's website displayed a message in Turkish with the country's flag placed at the top with aliases and usernames such as “MarbeyliWerom,” “b4rbarøsas,” and “oneshot.”
A photo of the 34th Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Abdul Hamid II, was also on the site with a footer note saying: “We are the ones who stopped the tanks with their bare hands on the night of July 15.
"We are those who killed death that night. We have been waiting for Archers Hill for 15 centuries! We are the keepers of that golden banner that will never miss its shadow on us.”
The National Intelligence Council in March listed RootAyyildiz on the Biden-Harris presidential campaign website, vote.joebiden.com, which lasted more than a day.
"In November, hackers promoting Turkish nationalist themes breached and defaced a website previously established for a candidate in the U.S. presidential campaign, according to U.S. cybersecurity press," the NIC stated in the report.
The defacement of Trump’s site isn’t the first – hackers last October claimed to have compromised “multiple devices” that gave them access to the “most internal and secret conversations” of Trump and his relatives, including classified information.
