Official website of Arizona State Governor Hacked by Turkish Hacker

A Turkish hacker going with the handle of “Swan” known from his Arizona Department of Homeland Security hack is back in news. This time the hacker has hacked and defaced two official websites of Arizona State Governor Janice K. Brewer.

The websites were hacked on 21st June, 2014 and left with a deface message along with a message against United States policies in the Middle East.

At the moment website’s Google Cache is displaying the deface page.

It is unclear how the hacker was able to access and deface both sites. However, this is not the first time when Swan was able to hack such a high profile website. In May 2014, the same hacker hacked and defaced the official website and server of Arizona Department of Homeland Security.

Links and mirrors of hacked Arizona State Governor Janice K. Brewer websites are mentioned below:
