Hijacked web pages display anti-Israel rhetoric


(JTA) — The web pages of a North Kansas City, Mo., website-hosting computer were hacked to display an anti-Israel image.

The home pages of about 50 organizations, including businesses and nonprofit groups, on the KCnet server were temporarily hijacked on the morning of June 24, according to the Kansas City Star.

The hijacked page included a picture of a Palestinian flag, and a crescent and star superimposed on a map of Turkey, as well as anti-Israel epithets. 

Normal service was restored later that morning, according to the newspaper.

KCnet was working to track the hacker. The password for adding content to the web pages of one of the organizations was compromised.
