Canton Kayak Club’s website taken down by anti-war hacker

Hacker's message read, in part, "All Hail the Islamic world, we're here!"

The website for the Canton Kayak Club was the victim of an apparent hacking attack last Wednesday, according to the Baltimore Sun.
A short message left by the hacker (“AKINCILAR”) was agitating against war and rallying “oppressed Muslim and Turkish brothers and sisters … in Syria and all over the world.”
By last Thursday afternoon, the Canton Kayak Club’s website was again operable. No word yet on why a recreational water sports group is Baltimore’s most vulnerable landmark.
