Incident: Dandenong Plaza website hacked to show a disturbing image of a clown | Dandenong Journal

Australian Information Security Incident Reported: March 7 2016

HACKERS have replaced the Dandenong Plaza website home page with a disturbing image of a Christmas-themed clown.

An evacuation at the shopping centre on Saturday was unrelated, a plaza spokeswoman said.

The Turk Hack Team claimed responsibility for the hack in text on the altered home page, which included a black background and a clown in a Christmas hat with bloodied facial scars.
