The sites in Ohio and Maryland were captured after the Team Team DZ hacking team hit the pro-ISIS and anti-Donald Trump messages index page.

The Ohio Gov. Websites John Kasich and Howard County, Maryland, were the first two to be at risk on Sunday, but other attacks are also targeted at the Ohio Rehabilitation and Correction Department, the Ohio Governor, Ohio's First Lady, Transformation, Health Transformation Office and Medicaid.

In addition, Team System DZ was also targeting the Washington Department of Health website, as well as several pages belonging to international organizations.

The deformed sites included a black wallpaper and an Arabic symbol, with an Islamic call to the prayer that runs in the background. A message posted on the website expressed the support of the Islamic State and included a warning to Donald Trump and the Americans.

Most websites have already been restored and the Ohio authorities have stated that they have already contacted the FBI to start an investigation.

"All affected servers have been downloaded offline and we are investigating how these hackers were able to disfigure these sites. We also work with law enforcement to better understand what has happened, "said Tom Hoyt, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Administration.

Team DZ is a group of hackers active since November of 2015, and their goals included not only sites on United States but throughout the world, including those belonging to the French and Spanish authorities.
