ANCHORAGE -

Every month, Mat-Su Borough officials say thousand of hackers attempt to breach the borough’s website -- and last weekend, one was successful.

The borough says that at about 2 p.m. Friday, a hacker inserted a file into the site which redirected online users to an anti-Israel website.  

According to borough spokesperson Stefan Hinman, within five minutes staff disabled the borough’s entire website and began working on fixing the problem. Hinman says that about 10 minutes later, the site was back up and running as normal.

Hinman says no sensitive information was ever at risk because the borough doesn’t keep any online.

Over the weekend, staff worked to improve the site’s security to avoid another incident.
