Former President Donald Trump’s website was hacked Monday and defaced by a purported pro-Turkey “hacktivist,” roughly one year after online vandals similarly targeted Trump’s and Biden’s campaign sites — the latest in a series of digital attacks targeting American businesses and political entities.

KEY FACTS
Earlier Monday, the “Action” section of Trump’s website featured a video of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the message “Hacked by RootAyyildiz” and links to Facebook and Instagram pages containing references to both Turkey and Erdogan.

By Monday afternoon, all references to Turkey were removed, and action.donaldjtrump.com redirected to the homepage of Trump’s website.

Trump’s website first appeared to be defaced with references to RootAyyildiz on October 9 at the latest, according to archived versions of the page.
