Several Ohio government websites hacked Sunday afternoon

Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction's website hacked

Websites belonging to a Long Island town and the OH state government were hacked Sunday to broadcast ISIS propaganda, according to reports.

Kasich's staff said Sunday that they were aware of the hack and working to resolve the issue.

"You will be held accountable Trump, you and all your people for every drop of blood flowing in Muslim countries", the message says.

The message, left by "Team System Dz", also ended, "I love the Islamic state".

Other Ohio government websites were also hacked on Sunday.

The Aberdeen City Council in Scotland was also targeted by the group in January, according to the BBC.

"All affected servers have been taken offline and we are investigating how these hackers were able to deface these websites", he told the Associated Press. OH government pages and the website for a town in Long Island were also part of the apparent attack. He hoped the websites would be up and running sometime Monday. A group of the same name has been known to hack websites worldwide for the past several years - from motorcycle retailers to daycare centers to computer fix businesses - with an array of anti-Israel and pro-Islamic messages. The pro-Isis group, which has been described as a group of "anti-Israeli Arab teenagers" by USA Today, has launched cyber attacks in France, Israel and other countries. When asked about the outage on the Brookhaven site, a spokeswoman who answered the phone at the NY town's police department simply offered a "no comment". "Wake up freedom-loving Americans", he said on Facebook.
