Hawaii's Web Site Hacked

The state of Hawaii's Internet home page was shut down on Monday after a computer hacker took it over, according to Darren Pai, a reporter at KHNL-TV, the NBC affiliate in Honolulu, Hawaii, which covered the story.

State information on the page was briefly replaced by a series of coded messages, some of which made references to homosexuality, while others warned of future hack attempts, Pai said.

The hack occurred during the Independence Day holiday when only a few computer experts were working. The site, www.state.hi.us, was up and running yesterday without further problems.
