Brownsburg Schools Hacked In Response To Anti-Muhammad Movie

Brownsburg and Fishers are among the cities which have added watering restrictions.

State and federal agencies are working with the Brownsburg Community School Corporation after its website was hacked on Wednesday.

School officials say the website was hacked from an outside source and it appears to be a random breach from someone looking for a vulnerable website.

Someone claiming to represent the group “All Muslims of the World” is taking responsibility for the hacking.   The school‘s homepage had Arabic writing on it and mentions an anti-Islam movie — the same movie that‘s being blamed for protests and violence in the Middle East.

School administrators say sensitive information is safe and was not exposed. They say the breach only impacted the main page and no data is stored there. All Brownsburg schools operated as usual on Thursday.
