Berrien County website hacked

Published 10:30am Saturday, March 30, 2013

The Berrien County website was hacked sometime in the past 24 hours by a group claiming to be Anonymous X-SecT V3.0.

The county’s website, berriencounty.org, was still hacked as of 10:15 a.m. Saturday morning. It is unclear how long it has been hacked.

The hackers left a message on the website reading, “Hello visitors! We are Anonymous X-SecT V3.0, some basement skidz pretending to be l33t haxorz! We eat (expletive) all day long an we are as ugly as a raccoon! We are the internet elite (expletive) and we hacked the (expletive) out of your (expletive)!”

The hackers then asked everyone, including the “fedz” the visit their Facebook page.
