The website of Dundalk FM was hacked last week, although the attack is not believed to carry a political message as with a previous incident.

The station have confirmed the hack, but are at a loss why it was hacked.

Alan Byrne, Manager of DundalkFM SAID: “A cover picture and music by Alvin and the Chipmunks appeared on the site.”

He went on to explain: “A reference to the hacker as ‘Black Thunder’ also appeared which has since been removed by Digiweb. It did not have a political message as with the previous attack.”

This is the second time the website was hacked. In January 2012, an anti-Israeli hacking group calling themselves “Z Company Hacking Crew” hacked the stations site.

The unprecedented attack on the website saw the site defaced with a statement from the group and disturbing pictures of dead Pakistani children who it claims were killed by American drones.

Following last week’s hacking attack, a temporary site was put in place for the local radio station.
