NDP caucus website hacked

The website of the NDP caucus office was hacked Thursday morning.

The website of the NDP caucus office was hacked Thursday morning.

Someone put up a front-page banner saying Snipers Hacker Team and White Cat Hackers Team and Turkish words that roughly translate as "The Mission Within."

The hackers signed off as Melih T. and Ahmet K.

Caucus spokeswoman Jenn Cotterill said no files were damaged and the website was quickly restored.

She said the site contains no personal information of party members, and is separate from the New Democratic Party site.

Cotterill said she has no idea who is behind the mischief.

"I have notified our staffers internally about the issue, and we are working with our service provider to ensure security is tightened, but we don't believe this warrants notifying the police," she said.
