A message claiming to be from ISIS remains on the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre website that has supposedly been hacked by the terror group.

A banner image and message is displayed on the organisation's site,, this morning that reads: "Hacked by Islamic State (ISIS). We are everywhere ;)."

Dublin Rape Crisis Centre said on Twitter on Sunday night: "Hi all thank you for the alerts about our website.

"We will have this fixed by tomorrow morning."

The organisation then tweeted that it was a Wordpress hack, and could as such not affect the full site. Wordpress is a system used by millions of sites worldwide.

While could be not verify that it was the notorious group behind the latest cyber-attack, there have been reports in other parts of the world about similar attacks.

The Icelandic Museum website as well as the website for Eldora Speedway in the US, and other businesses in St Louis, was reported as being hit in the exact same manner.

A report about an attack on the site of Sequoia Park Zoo in California indicated that all of the sites affected used Wordpress.
