According to The Daily Mail,
“Trump’s campaign website has been ‘seized’ by hackers who claim to have evidence that ‘completely discredits’ him as a president and proves his ‘criminal involvement’ in the manipulation of the 2020 election…”
The message continued that the world,
“has had enough of fake news spreaded [sic] daily by the president … it is time to allow the world to know the truth.”
The hackers claimed to have compromised multiple of the president’s devices, that gave them
“full access’ to Trump and his relatives, along with access to confidential information.
Strictly classified information is exposed proving that the Trump gov is involved in the origin of the coronavirus”
‘We have evidence that completely discredits mr trump as a president, proving his criminal involvement and cooperation with foreign actors manipulating the 2020 elections. the US citizens have no choice.’
The post continued:
“Today is the day – the whole world can decide if they want to known the truth or not.
A message reading, ‘this site was seized’ appeared briefly on the homepage of DonaldJTrump.com, before the website was taken offline completely just after 7:20pm.
The page was signed with a encryption key corresponding to an email address at a the non-existent domain, ‘planet.gov‘ and asked for cyprtocurrency donations.
Trump’s website was back up and running by 7:45pm. The White House has not yet commented on the system breach.
Asking people to irreversibly send cryptocurrency to a mysterious address is a common type of online scam.
Trump Communications Director Tim Murtaugh has released a statement,
“Earlier this evening, the Trump campaign website was defaced and we are working with law enforcement authorities to investigate the source of the attack.
‘There was no exposure to sensitive date because no of it is actually store on the site. The website has been restored.”
