North Shore Hacked Website by the Forward

FBI investigating antisemitic hacking at Long Island Jewish day school

The FBI has joined the investigation into the antisemitic hacking of North Shore Hebrew Academy’s website.

During the hack, which lasted only a few hours, the hackers changed the school’s name to “North Shore Hebrew Death Camp” and uploaded images of swastikas, Nazi rallies and other antisemitic symbols, according to Insider. They also rewrote the school’s information page to read “About the Kike Race,” and boasted about sending students on a “field trip” to Auschwitz.

“These attacks will never be tolerated and I have assigned extra resources due to these anti-Semitic remarks and threats,” Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said in a statement immediately after the attack.
