INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 21, 2015) — The Indiana Artisans website was allegedly hacked Saturday afternoon by a pro-ISIS hacker group.

The website says it has been “hacked by Team System Dz” and posts a message saying the “Islamic State List to restore the right of Muslims who have been killed by your governments savage and unjust”.

The group claims the “Islamic state will restore dignity for Muslims”.

Gary Coons from Homeland Security says they are investigating a hack by another group claiming to be associated with ISIS and this is the only report he has received of a local website being hacked.

The director of Indiana Artisan, Eric Freeman confirmed that the hack was found around noon on Saturday.

Freeman heard from Homeland Security that hacks seem to be happening to groups who have websites that are operated using Word Press.

Right now Indiana Artisans information can be found using their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/IndianaArtisan

The group hopes to have it fixed by Monday.
