Trump campaign website hacked

President Trump's campaign website was partially compromised by a cryptocurrency scam over a short period of time, according to The New York Times.

The wrong advice from the FBI was that the attacker had seized the site before there was any evidence that he had received Trump's private communications containing evidence of wrongdoing.

It then contained two cryptocurrency wallet addresses, and the attacker asked visitors to send the money and actively voted on whether these documents should be released.

Trump's campaign manager, Tim Murtaugh, confirmed in a statement on Twitter that President Trump's campaign website had been hacked.

He said: There is no sensitive data stored on the site. We are working with law enforcement to investigate the source of the attack. The site was restored to its original content within minutes.

According to the New York Times, journalist Gabriel Lorenzo Greschler (Gabriel Lorenzo Greschler) was one of the first to discover the hacker and posted a screenshot of it on Twitter.

The notice posted on the site in broken English claimed that the Trump administration was involved in the Corona virus and that the president was involved in foreign parties rigging the 2020 elections.

The attackers provided Monero addresses for visitors to send money to so they could effectively vote on the conviction case. Monero is an easy way to send cryptocurrency, but it's hard to track.

The message "Expiration Date" will appear. Then the money amount is compared to the two addresses, but there is no information about the "expiration date".

One address is for those who want to reveal confidential information and the other is for those who want to keep it secret.

You read the advice: The world is tired of President (Donald Trump) spreading false news every day, and now is the time to transmit the truth to the world.

The page also displays a public encryption key (PGP) that matches an email address in a nonexistent domain (

There is no indication that anything other than the website itself has been compromised by hackers. It is not clear what exactly is going on behind the scenes, and it should be noted that the incident occurred just a week before the election and involved foreign intervention. .
