Trump campaign web page seized


Trump's campaign website is briefly 'seized' by hackers who claim to have evidence that 'proves his criminal involvement with foreign actors to manipulate the election' - but spokesman says 'there was no exposure to sensitive data'
A message reading, 'this site was seized' appeared briefly on DonaldJTrump.com, before the website was taken offline completely at 7:20pm
The hackers behind the stunt claimed to have compromised multiple of the president's devices, that gave them 'full access' to Trump and his relatives
'We have evidence that completely discredits mr trump as a president, proving his criminal involvement...with foreign actors manipulating the 2020 elections'
The hackers then included a link to two cryptocurrency addresses, one for 'yes, release the data' and a second for 'no, don't release it'
Trump 2020 Communications Director Tim Murtaugh later released a statement on the system breach, assuring that no sensitive data has been compromised


The post continued: 'Today is the day - the whole world can decide if they want to known the truth or not'.

The hackers then included a link to two cryptocurrency wallets, associated with Monero, a 'private, secure, and untraceable digital' cryptocurrency.

They asked viewers of the page to make a donation to either one of the pages to 'vote' as to whether the hackers should either share the data they purport to have on the president, or not to share it.

They said whichever of the links raises the most money by the end of an unspecified deadline will determine their next step.

'After the deadline we will compare the funds and execute the will of the world,' the post read. 'in both cases we will inform you.'

1. Fascinating!

I wonder if the hackers took it down or the campaign officials.
