You knew this was going to happen sooner or later: A server on President Trump’s campaign site, donaldjtrump.com was hacked on Sunday and defaced with an image and message from an attacker claiming to hail from Iraq.
Ars Technica noted that secure2.donaldjtrump.com bore an image of a man in a fedora with the following message:
Hacked By Pro_Mast3r ~
Nothing Is Impossible
Peace From Iraq
Do you want to be a cryptocurrency millionaire?
Don't get your hopes up.
A search for ‘Pro_Mast3r’ didn’t surface anything relevant, so it isn’t clear exactly who was behind the attack and what purpose it served.
We’ve contacted the Trump-Pence campaign team to learn more and will update this post if there’s a response.
