WARRENTON, Ore. (AP) - While the city of Warrenton’s website was hacked this weekend, police say the personal information of staff, employees, vendors, businesses and customers was not compromised.

The Daily Astorian reports (https://goo.gl/3tMQjr ) that officials discovered the hack Saturday morning when the main webpage was replaced with a single image of what appeared to be graves marked by wooden crosses and a derogatory message about the United States’ presence in Iraq. The website also plaid a song in a foreign language.

Officials say the website is hosted by a third-party vendor and that it is not connected to any of the city servers, where sensitive information is stored.

All access credentials have been changed to prevent future incidents.
