FYLDESPORT was hacked last week by a group called ‘WHACKERZ by Saudia_HaCker’. We explore the possible culprits.
For a few hours the home page was blank apart from the hackers’ name.
Apologies for the inconvenience but normal service was resumed as soon as backups were reinstated.
As for the hackers, not much information apart from the fact that they seem to be some religious or politically motivated hacking group from the UAE.

Rumours that fyldesport themselves were to blame – after a planned series of cartoons were leaked about the Lancashire Football Association which would have depicted a blasphemous portrayal of the profit – are totally untrue.
Fyldesport as ever remains absolutely non-religious, non-political and unfortunately non-profit making!
