The website went offline and restored by authorities.

According to report, the Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said that the site was quickly fixed and no sensitive data was compromised.
“The Trump campaign website was defaced and we are working with law enforcement authorities to investigate the source of the attack,” he said.

It is not the first time that US President Trump’s hacked. Last week a Dutch security researcher accessed the Twitter account by guessing his weak password “maga2020!”. The twitter account was not protected by two-factor authentication.

After that, he mailed to US-CERT, a division of Homeland Security’s cyber unit Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). Later Trump’s twitter account password has changed.

Hackers also shared two Monero (cryptocurrency) address. According to Techcrunch, the page was signed with a PGP public key corresponding to an email address at a non-existent domain (planet.gov).

Trump recently stated, mistakenly it seems, that “Nobody gets hacked. To get hacked you need somebody with 197 IQ and he needs about 15% of your password.”

Currently, there is no evidence who hacked the website, but the cyber investigation is ongoing.

On the other hand, the United States Presidential Election will be held on 3rd November 2020. US voters will select their next president between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

But the serious note is, the incident happened exactly one week before the US presidential Election Day.
