ISIS hackers target Arkansas librarians

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - The Islamic State hacked an Arkansas organization and posted information of its members online.

According to a Newsweek article, the Federal Bureau of Investigations said data from the Arkansas Library Association's website was stolen and appeared on a pro-ISIS website.

"I didn't know how to approach it," Lynda Hampel, executive administrator, told KARK-TV.

Hampel said the victims include the 600 members of the association who work at libraries across the state.

"Arkansas librarians are innocent and quiet and we stick to ourselves and do what we have to do for our communities," Hampel said.
