Trump campaign website hacked in ‘cryptocurrency scam’


The official website of US President Donald Trump has been hacked by an apparent cryptocurrency scam.

His re-election campaign team is investigating the security breach.

“The world has had enough of the fake news spreaded [sic] daily” by the US president, a message on briefly displayed.
The campaign team said there was “no exposure to sensitive data because none of it is actually stored on the site”. The website has now been restored.

Screenshots circulating online show the website briefly displayed a fake message, accompanied by the FBI and the US Department of Justice badges.

The message then asked for cryptocurrency donations in exchange for access to this information.

There is no evidence to back these statements, and the Trump campaign denies any sensitive data was collected, BBC reported.
