South London Healthcare Trust website hacked
Hackers targeted South London Healthcare Trust's website and left an Arabic message on Tuesday of last week.
The site was offline for several hours following the attack, which appears to have been random. According to experts the inscription was the Shahadah, a one-line declaration of faith said by those converting to Islam.
A trust spokesman said: “We are sorry for any inconvenience to patients and visitors during the short period overnight that the website was out of action.
“This hacking group appears to target websites at random, and there is no reason why the SLHT site was targeted. We are investigating how this has happened.”
The trust said the hacking had “not compromised security” of its IT systems.
