Fresh from the tipline and confirmed using multiple machines and browsers, our lovely ethics site has been hacked.
If you go to http://ethics.ga.gov/ instead of seeing the normal splash page where you can do your research on lobbyists as well as elected officials, you get to see a lovely photo of Iran courtesy of the Ashiyane Digital Security Team .
Why would an Iranian hacker group take out the Georgia Ethics website? I haven’t a clue, but maybe they just wanted to be kind and let the State of Georgia know there was a security flaw.
It seems to have been fixed.
