Bangor Daily News
The paper says on top of its home page that its website “suffered several hours of downtime Monday evening after hackers from Tunisia exploited a security vulnerability on one of the BDN’s servers.” The notice adds: “While the site is being restored, online readers will notice changes to the display of the site and will be unable to access some features and archived articles. The BDN staff is working as quickly as possible to fully restore the site.
