Castle Cary website hacked in cyber attack
Comments (0)

WEB users in Castle Cary were urged not to visit the town’s website after it was hacked by a group claiming to be “The Nigerian Cyber Army” earlier this week.

Visitors to the website were greeted with the unusual homepage on Monday morning and access to the website and its subsequent pages was denied.

The Castle Cary Town website normally contains details of local community groups, town news and events listings as well as being the homepage of the town council.

Following the cyber-attack on the site a spokesman for the website said: “We’re working on a solution, but for the moment it’s probably best to avoid it, to be on the safe side, and certainly don’t click on any of the links.”

The website was restored to its normal format later that evening following an investigation into the breach of security.

All pages are now back to working order.
