The Women’s Resource Centre, a charity based in London, has had its website hacked by a pro-Isis group, according to the Guardian Voluntary Sector Network.
On Wednesday 21st January, the charity’s website homepage was replaced by a page stating “I love Isis & Jihad” and “Je suis Isis” along with a promotional video, which contains distressing scenes. The Women’s Resource Centre is currently working on getting the page back to normal.
CEO of the charity, Vivienne Hayes, said: “We have no idea why we were targeted. Our work is nationally based and we have no international links.”
The charity’s head of communications, Natalie Gyte, said: “The [website] hosting company is trying to access back-ups of our site, but we have no in-house technical experts so I’m not 100% sure what the next steps are.”
