President Donald Trump’s campaign website hacked

Donald Trump’s team admitted that the US president’s website was hacked on Tuesday night, after posting a message saying the world had ‘had enough’.

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign said the site was briefly “downgraded” as the hacker (s) claimed to have accessed “strictly classified information” and evidence that the Trump administration was “involved in the origin of the coronavirus ”. The move actually appears to have been an unsophisticated scam to collect cryptocurrency, according to reports.

Presidential spokesman Tim Murtaugh said: “Earlier this evening the Trump campaign website was downgraded and we are working with law enforcement 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.

Screenshots show the website claiming that it was “grabbed” because “the world is fed up with the fake news being broadcast daily by President Donald J. Trump.”

He claimed to have “full access to Trump and his relatives” and launched a slew of unfounded accusations that Mr. Trump was involved in criminal activity and other allegations aimed at discrediting the president.

The website then displayed an error message stating, in part, “This site is currently offline.”

It has since been restored.

There has not yet been any indication of the identity of the hacker (s).

It comes after another hacker said he accessed the President’s personal Twitter account simply by guessing his password – and claiming it was “maga2020!” “. The White House denies that this is the password.

Victors Gevers says he managed to guess the password on the fifth attempt and took a screenshot to prove it, a Dutch newspaper reported last week.

He then claims to have informed the US government and suggested changing the password.

Yesterday’s last hack appears to have taken place shortly before 4 p.m. PT, according to the Tech Crunch website.

The FBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
