An Islamist hackers' syndicate hacked into the website of one village school and substituted with text containing pro-Turkish propaganda.
The Chichester neighboring North Mundham Primary School cyber-attack is undergoing investigation by Sussex Police. The investigation follows concerned parents' lodging of complaints at the police station. The hacking group is from Turkey and named Ayyildiz Tim that's understood to oppose Israel, oppose Christians, and vigorously oppose Americans. It targets websites globally.
Apparently Sussex Police got plenty of reports about a hacking attack on North Mundham Primary School's website. The displayed pictures along with general material after the infiltration into the website had resulted in worry amidst parents regarding their kids' safety in the school.
Julia Carey, head teacher of the school stated that the parents of two students did not let their children come to the school since they were upset of the hacking incident. According to her, parents' fears were natural and that it wasn't something anybody associated with the school would want. Additionally she said that people would probably be aware that the school authorities were jointly working for the safety of the children in respect of every aspect.
Sussex Police further said that they were reassuring staff as well as parents that early probes hadn't found evidence of any specific threat as connected with the act.
Also they indicated that although the hack's nature was greatly malicious, Sussex Police hadn't got any particular else credible clue which would've led them to recommend pupils be let to stay outside the school. Chichester.co.uk posted this, April 24, 2017.

Investigation by Sussex Police would go on and they would coordinate with the institution every morning as well as put into force reassurance patrols incase needed.
