Norfolk, Va. – Students and other visitors who attempted to access Old Dominion University’s Mace & Crown Website, was not greeted by the normal headlines and news stories; instead, they saw a black and red page created by a Algerian hacker group.

The staff knew about the incident on Sunday and they’ve been working with the website’s hosting provider, Go Daddy, to resolve the problem. They’ve already removed the image that was previously on the site.

The IT Department at the school and the administration are also working on this situation.

They are willing to work with law enforcement if necessary.
