The FBI is investigating cyber-attacks over the weekend on several western websites allegedly by someone with links to ISIL terror group.

The websites that were hacked include that of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre in Ireland, the Southwest Montana Community Federal Credit Union, Third Street Brewhouse, and the Montauk Manor.

The hacked websites carried a picture of the black ISIL flag and the words “hacked by ISIL, we are everywhere.”

Southwest Montana Community Federal Credit Union and Montauk Manor have removed the ISIL banner, while Third Street Brewhouse’s website “is currently undergoing scheduled maintenance,” and will take more than two days to come online.

No accounts at the credit union have been compromised in the attack.

ISIL is said to have hacked hundreds of websites in the US and Europe on 6 and 7 March. “The FBI is aware of the reported incidents and is contacting the impacted parties,” the agency said.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
