Hackers disrupt Red Cross fundraiser
The Red Cross Faroe Islands website was invaded by hackers during the annual national fundraiser
Hackers disabled the Red Cross Faroe Islands website earlier this month

Police are investigating reports of hackers targeting the Faroese Red Cross website during the annual fundraiser on 7 September.

Since bank details and other sensitive information are available on the site, it is likely that the hacker attack has prevented members of the public from donating money, according to Red Cross Faroe Islands.

The website is now up and running again, and new security features have been added to prevent further attacks.
