Hacking. Disinformation. Surveillance. CYBER is Motherboard’s podcast and reporting on the dark underbelly of the internet.

Hackers allegedly from Turkey have defaced a section of Donald Trump’s website.

“Do not be like those who forget Allah, so Allah made them forget themselves. Here they really went astray,” a part of the defacement, which says it was allegedly carried out by someone calling themselves RootAyyildiz, reads. The page includes an embed of a nationalist YouTube video of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.


The defacement impacts the “action” subdomain of the website, which is ordinarily used by the Trump campaign for calls to action, such as petitions or asking the campaign a question.
