Keighley's website has been hacked and replaced with a page ranting about ISIS. Bizarre target, to say the least!

St Helens, due to move out of their 120-year-old ground at the end of the season, desperately wanted to mark the occasion with a victory in front of a full house.... And Wigan were left celebrating inside the enemy camp for the first time since September 2003.

Are you sure it's not the Cougars blaming ISIS for the new league structure? They've blamed everyone else.

Honestly not trying to provoke a racist or immigration debate here...but its not such a bizarre target when you consider Keighley's diverse population. A pro-ISIS supporter may have simply picked something local that came in to their head.

I don't know anything about IT etc so couldn't really comment, it could perhaps be one of a number of sites accessed through the company which runs it.

Edit- just found this.

was watching an nfl doco. on one of their teams and they used the term bomb to describe those long high passes from quaterback to running back and i think gibson took that idea, realized you cant throw the ball forward in RL and adapted it to a "bomb" kick we have

This is leading to security concerns from fans who bought stuff like season tickets from the website using paypal or their visa details.

Insecure server. if it's the host move away as they're obviously using outdated software with known issues. Could also have been the company that manages the site if they haven't kept WordPress up to date.

Either way it's nothing personal. Scan around for servers with known vulnerabilities and take them over, just so happens one of those was hosting a rugby site.

Best option would have been to start with a fresh OS image, never trust a server that has been compromised & always expect the worst case scenario. Easier to do that than leave something behind that gives them access again.

The story was mentioned in the national press or at least their online presence this morning. Can't remember which paper - either DM, DE, Mirror or DT.
