French Euromillions website hacked and defaced

The French Euromillions website has been hacked and defaced with a passage from the Koran criticising gambling.

The French Euromillions website has been hacked and defaced with a passage from the Koran criticising gambling.

 
A hacker group called Moroccanghosts took over the website, posting a message on the front page in Arabic and French that linked gambling with the “works of the devil.”
 
The website, euromillions.fr, was hacked on Sunday morning, but the Koran verse was removed by Sunday evening. The website has since been restored to its normal condition.
 
 
The website of Francaise des Jeux (FDJ), the company that runs Euromillions in France, was also inaccessible, likely the victim of the same hackers.
 
It does not appear that any data, which includes customer credit card details, was compromised in the attack, nor was any money stolen from the lottery. FDJ said no other games run by it were affected.
