Hackers attack Cedar Rapids' Web site

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- You won't notice any problems right now, but hackers did a number on an eastern Iowa City's official website.

Cyber vandals hacked into the City of Cedar Rapids' web site over the weekend.

Sunday morning, officials noticed that several pages on the site, including the City Council and department pages, were replaced with a message that read "HACK IS NOT A CRIME IS BREAKING YOUR 'SECURITY.' "

Information technology director Bill Carr says the city left the changes for a time in order to observe the hack and try to trace its origin.

As of Monday morning, the site was back to normal.

Carr says other parts of the city's computer network apparently were not breached and there isn't any threat to any personal information.
