SARATOGA COUNTY, N.Y. – Investigators are trying to figure out how the Saratoga County website was hacked over the weekend.
The website was hacked to say "We don't forget, we don't forgive, expect us," while foreign music played in the background. The message claimed to come from "Red Crucible" and "The Palestine Hacker Team."
“It’s something the FBI is familiar with through other cases, and they are going to look at prior history with the group that possibly put this up,” Sheriff Michael Zurlo said.
The Saratoga County Sheriff's Office says the server that was hit was at an off-site server, meaning it is not actually located within the county. Zurlo said no sensitive data was comprised during the hack, but authorities aren’t taking the incident lightly.
The county is looking at ways to make the site safer, and the sheriff’s office is working with the FBI and the NYS Computer Crimes Unit to solve the crime.
