Hacker breaches Routt County website

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. – Routt County staffers are working to find who hacked the county’s website.

The county’s director of information systems, Terry Barber, says hackers breached the website Friday evening. They posted messages with expletives, a logo shaped like a two-headed eagle and one message that read, “Admin Please Change Your Password, And Patch Your Bugs Don’t Be Stupid.”

Barber says there is no indication that any personal or sensitive information such as employee files or voter registration records was accessed.

One of the groups appearing to take credit for the hack is the Kosova Hackers Group, which in the past has claimed responsibility for hacks into websites of some eastern European countries.
