Keighley Cougars Hacked Website

The website of Rugby League team, the Keighley Cougars, has been recovered after it was hacked and replaced with a page that featured the message “i love you isis”.

Earlier today, the Keighley Cougar’s twitter feed posted: “Apologies, the website has been hacked. The developers are working on it. Will let you know when it’s back up and running.”

It is believed the site was hacked by supporters of the militant group ISIS, also known as Islamic State.

The West Yorkshire club’s home page showed a black screen with the words “Hacked By Team System DZ” at the top.

It featured the ISIS emblem, images of fighter jets which it referred to as “warplanes of making America”, and bloody images of people injured in fighting.

The incident was reported to West Yorkshire Police and the web host, who took the site down.

It recovered to its original state today.

According to the chairman of the club, the incident has been passed on to anti-terrorism police.
