As of 8:30 a.m. ET, the site was returned to normal.
The website for actor Kirk Cameron’s upcoming movie “Saving Christmas” was infiltrated by Islamic hackers, the film’s production team said.
Sony’s Provident Films alerted producers over the weekend that SavingChristmas.com was taken over by a message from Ayyildiz Tim International Force, a hacker group described as anti-Christian, anti-Israel and anti-American.
A member of the production team told TheBlaze Sunday that the attack was “fairly sophisticated” but that they were able to quickly remove the group’s message from the website.
The hackers struck again Monday morning, filling the website’s main page with Turkish text and an image of a man in full armor. Visitors were automatically forwarded to Ayyildiz Tim’s Twitter page after hearing music and a loud gunshot.
