It seems the ISIS Hacker has returned to continue to deface government ran websites.
This time the target is that of a New Jersey School District website which has been covered with Islamic State propaganda.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now investigating the hack trying to determine whether or not the action was committed by the Islamic Terror organization or if it were a copycat, but this isn't the first time it has happened.
Earlier this year there were several instances of government websites being painted top to bottom with ISIS propaganda including that of an <a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/4279-Ohio-Department-Of-Corrections-Website-Hacked-By-Pro-ISIS-Group">Ohio State Department of Corrections </a>website which was not only hacked by loyalists to the Islamic State but covered in similar propaganda.
According to an alert sent out by the Bloomfield Public School District the website used by the district which is hosted by School Desk, and was just one of hundreds of sites across the country that fell victim to the hack at about 4 AM Monday.
"For about two hours, our websites displayed an ISIS-sponsored YouTube video. Around 6 a.m., the hacked page was brought down and by about 7 AM, full functionality and control were restored," the district wrote in a notice posted on its restored website.
The underscored message from the Bloomfield School District remains as follows:
<blockquote>"The FBI and investigative agencies are looking into the matter. At no time was confidential student or staff data compromised. The internal computer and data systems within the district were completely unaffected. Everything that happened occurred at the web host's companies server farms in Atlanta, Georgia and Florida."</blockquote>
The ISIS video included several images of Saddam Hussein and an audible Arabic message, the statement said.
It also hosted a video which included an Arabic message that read, "There is no God but God. Muhammad is the prophet of God."
Bloomfield is the only district website in New Jersey that is hosted by School Desk, according to the company's website.
A call to Bloomfield schools was not immediately answered. The state Department of Education did not comment on the hack, but Federal Agents are certainly trying to find the culprit in order to determine whether or not there is any legitimate threats to the Bloomfield School District.
The Bloomfield School District posted the following message on its site
<blockquote>”Around 4 AM EST, Monday, 11/6, an unknown group hacked the websites of a number of companies nationwide, including the one that hosts the District's and school's websites. For about two hours, our websites displayed an ISIS-sponsored YouTube video.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Around 6 AM, the hacked page was brought down and by about 7 AM full functionality and control were restored.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”The FBI and investigative agencies are looking into the matter. At no time was confidential student or staff data compromised. The internal computer and data systems within the District were completely unaffected. Everything that happened occurred at the web host's companies server farms in Atlanta, Georgia and Florida.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”We are awaiting a formal press release from SchoolDesk, our web host company, and will publish it as soon as it is released.”</blockquote>

Even if it turns out it's a ruse committed by leftists hackers then they're responsible for spreading propaganda of a terrorist organization and could face charges in relation to terrorism.
Several left-wing and Communist-backed groups are also sympathetic to ISIS including AntiFa and Anarchist groups which continue to become intertwined with the terrorist organization known as The Islamic State.
